  1. A person wants to reduce the trade tax so he calculates his profit on the sale price instead of on the cost price.In this way by selling a article for Rs. 280 he calculates his profit as 142/7%. What is his actual profit percentage ?
    1. 20 %
    2. 16.66 %
    3. 25 %
    4. data insufficient
  1. Correct Option: B

    Selling price(SP) = 280.
    Cost price (CP) = SP - 142/7% = 240.

    Actual profit (%) = (40 / 240) x 100 = 16.66%
