Answer: Option

Explanation:

Let the income of Company X in 1998 be Rs. *x* crores.

x 100 x = 310. |

200 |

Expenditure of Company X in 2001 | = Income of Company X in 1998 |

= Rs. 310 crores. |

Let the income of Company X in 2001 be Rs. *z* crores.

Then, 50 = | z - 310 |
x 100 z = 465. |

310 |

Income of Company X in 2001 = Rs. 465 crores.

Company (x) 1998.

155%of200 = 310.

Income (x) 1998 = Expenditure (x) 2001.

Company (x) 2001.

150%of310 = 465.

155%of200 = 310.

Income (x) 1998 = Expenditure (x) 2001.

Company (x) 2001.

150%of310 = 465.

Please explain this,

50 = z - 310 / 310 * 100.

50 = z - 310 / 310 * 100.

SHORT CUT:

NOTE:

Always Expenditure is 100% and .

Income =Expenditure + profit.

Solution:

Given that Expenditure(x)1998 = 200cr.

Income(x)1998 = Expenditure(x)2001.

Find Income(x)2001=?

155 = x(let income)[155 means expenditure+profit i.e 100+55).

100 =b200(given).

Then (200*155)/100 = x.

x = 310 = Expenditure(x)2001 (given).

Again,

150 = y (let).

100 = 310.

y = (150*310)/100.

y = 465(answer).
