A. q/5

B. 7q/1000

C. 7q/5

D. 280/q

E. q/200 + 40q


Since the calculation looks relatively straightforward, we'll just do it.
This is a Precise approach.

The average price per violin is q/200. If this was sold at a 40% increase we get (q/200)*1.4 = 14q/2000 = 7q/1000
(B) is our answer.

Price of each violin C.P.= q/200. S.P= 1.4 times C.P. Therefore selling price= 1.4*q/200=7q/1000. Ans-B.

C. 7q/5

D. 280/q

Ans: B

Price of each violin = q / 200

40% of violin cost = 40 % of (q/200) = q/500

Total cost = (q/200) + (q/500) = 7q/1000
option B

Cost of Each Violin is \(q/200\).Therefore, each sold will be \((7/5)(q/200) = 7q/1000\).

C. 7q/5

D. 280/q

CP of each Violin = \(\frac{q}{200}\)
Sp of Each Violin = \(\frac{q}{200}*\frac{140}{100}\)

Or, Sp of Each Violin = \(\frac{q}{200}*\frac{7}{5}\)

Or, Sp of Each Violin = \(\frac{7q}{1000}\), answer will be (B)

The original cost per violin is q/200, so the the selling price per violin was:

1.4 x q/200 = 1.4q/200 = 14q/2000 = 7q/1000

Answer: B
