Given,
Vijay bought a second-hand grinder for= Rs. 2200
He spent on it repairs=Rs 300
The total cost price of the grinder=Rs 2200 + Rs 300
=Rs 2500
Selling Price of the Grinder=Rs 3000
Here Selling Price is greater than the Cost Price of the Grinder.
So Profit is gained.
Profit=Selling Price – Cost Price
=Rs 3000 – Rs 2500
=Rs 500
Profit Percent=Profit/C.P × 100
=500/2500 × 100
=20
Hence, the Profit percentage is 20%.

III. A shopkeeper buys a washing Machine for Rs 5400 and spends Rs 600 on its repairs. If he sells the repaired Washing Machine for Rs 5700, find:

=Rs 6000
Selling Price of the washing Machine=Rs 57000.
Here Selling Price is lesser than the Cost Price of the washing machine. So Loss occurs.
Loss=Cost Price – Selling Price
=Rs 6000 – Rs 5700
=Rs 300
Loss Percent=Loss/C.P × 100
=300/6000 × 100
=5
Hence, the Profit percentage is 5%.

IV. Pankaj bought an old scooter for Rs.18000 and spent Rs.1200 on its repairs. He wants to sell it to make a profit of 20%. For how much should he sell the scooter?

=Rs 19200
Profit%=20%
Profit%=SP – CP/CP × 100
20% =SP – CP/CP × 100
Sp=CP + Cp × 20/100
=CP + CP × 0.2
= CP(1.2)
=19200(1.2)
= Rs 23040
Hence, Pankaj should sell the scooter at Rs 23040.

=4000 – 3200
= Rs 800
Profit%=Profit/CP × 100
=800/3200 × 100
=25
Hence, the Profit Percentage is 25%.

SP=CP +  0.16 CP
SP=CP(1.16)
=2000(1.16)
=Rs 2320
