**NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 8 Comparing Quantities Exercise 8.3**

Ex 8.3 Class 7 Maths Question 1.

Tell what is the profit or loss in the following transactions. Also find profit per cent or loss per cent in each case.

(a) Gardening shears bought for ₹ 250 and sold for ₹ 325.

(b) A refrigerator bought for ₹ 12,000 and sold at ₹ 13,500.

(c) A cupboard bought for ₹ 2,500 and sold at ₹ 3,000.

(d) A skirt bought for ₹ 250 and sold at ₹ 150.

Solution:

(a) Here, CP = ₹ 250

SP = ₹ 325

Since SP > CP

∴ Profit = SP – CP

= ₹ 325 – ₹ 250 = ₹ 75

Hence, the required profit = ₹ 75

and Profit per cent = 30%

(b) Here, CP = ₹ 12,000

SP = ₹ 13,500

Since SP > CP

∴ Profit = SP – CP

= ₹ 13,500 – ₹ 12,000 = ₹ 1,500

Hence, the required profit = ₹ 1500 × 100

profit % = %

(c) Here, CP = ₹ 2500

SP = ₹ 3000

Since SP > CP

∴ Profit = SP – CP

= ₹ 3000 – ₹ 2500 = ₹ 500

Hence, the required profit = ₹ 500 and profit% = 20%

(d) Here, CP = ₹ 250

SP = ₹ 150

Here CP > SP

∴ Loss = CP – SP

= ₹ 250 – ₹ 150 = ₹ 100

Hence, the required loss = ₹ 100 and loss% = 40%

Ex 8.3 Class 7 Maths Question 2.

Convert each part of the ratio to Percentage:

(a) 3:1

(b) 2:3:5

(c) 1 : 4

(d) 1:2:5

Solution:

(a) 3 : 1

Sum of the ratio parts = 3 + 1 = 4

(b) 2 : 3 : 5

Sum of the ratio parts = 2 + 3 + 5 = 10

(c) 1 : 4

Sum of the ratio parts =1 + 4 = 5

(d) 1 : 2 : 5

Sum of the ratio parts = 1 + 2 + 5 = 8

Ex 8.3 Class 7 Maths Question 3.

The population of a city decreased from 25,000 to 24,500. Find the Percentage decrease.

Initial population = 25,000

Decreased population = 24,500

Decrease in population

Percentage of decrease = = 2%

Hence the Percentage of decrease in population = 2%.

Ex 8.3 Class 7 Maths Question 4.

Amount = Principal + Interest

= ₹ 1200 + ₹ 432 = ₹ 1632

Hence, the required amount = ₹ 1632

(b) Given: Principal = ₹ 7500

Rate = 5% p.a.

Time = 3 years

∴ Interest =

= ₹1125

Amount = Principal + Interest

= ₹ 7500 + 11125 = ₹ 8625

Hence, the required amount = ₹ 8625.

Ex 8.3 Class 7 Maths Question 10.
