Let price in June = x
Price in May\(= \frac{2x}{3}\)
Price in July \(= \frac{2x}{3} * \frac{125}{100}\)
Avg price of May & July \(= \frac{\frac{2x}{3} + \frac{2x}{3} * \frac{125}{100}}{2}\)
\(= \frac{75x}{100}\)
x is greater than \(\frac{75x}{100}by \frac{25x}{100}\)
In terms of percentage, it will be
\(\frac{100 * x}{\frac{75x}{100}}\)
Answer = 133.33% = D
I have one question - In the month of July I have considered the following
July = [2][/3]X[*][25[/100] =[1[/6]X
Average = 15/18X
now to find out the X value = X/[15[/18]x = 120% My answer is C. please let me know how you got 125/100 in July and the next steps little more explicit. Thank you so much for your help.
Price of the bond on july 1st was 25% greater than the price of the bond on may 1st
For Example, if the price in may was 100, then price in month of july would be 25 more i.e 125
Using this analogy, we can calculate the price wrt 2x/3
One we have the above value corrected, the average comes up to 75x/100
Please note that x > 75x/100 OR we can say 100x/100 > 75x/100
So 75x/100 has increased by 25x/100 to reach 100x/100 (or x)
So in terms of percentage, it will be increase of 33.33 or it will reach 133.33%
Hope this helps
