• # question_answer If selling price of an article is,$\frac{4}{3}$ of its cost price, the profit in the transaction is ? A) $16\,\,\frac{2}{3}%$                B) $20\,\,\frac{1}{2}%$C) $25\,\,\frac{1}{2}%$                D) $33\,\,\frac{1}{3}%$

Let cost price is Rs. x then selling price $=Rs.\,\,\frac{4}{3}x$ $\therefore$ Required profit percent $=\frac{\frac{4}{3}x-x}{x}\times 100%$ $=\frac{4x-3x}{3x}\times 100%$ $=\frac{100}{3}%$ $=33\,\,\frac{1}{3}%$
