MCQ

If the selling price is doubled and the profit triples, find the profit percent.

#### Options

• 66 2/3%

• 100%

• 105 1/3%

• 120%

#### Solution

100%
Explanation :
Let CP be ₹ x and SP be ₹ y.
Then, 3(y - x) = (2y - x)
⇒  y = 2x
Profit = ₹(y - x) = ₹(2x - x) = ₹ x

∴  Profit% = (x/x×100)% = 100%
