PERCENTAGE CHAPTER MATHS
TRICKS
Basically on previous article
we provide the profit and loss and work and time tricks now, we
are provide percentage chapter of maths that is very useful in all exams and
810 no. of question are asked from that chapter.
With the help of percentage
tricks we can apply is to the various form like ratio, profit loss, time and
distance, graphs, pie chart etc these are basically are the form of percentage
and if you clear the basic concept it will be beneficial in many ways.
so,
first what is percentage
DEFINITION
a percentage is a number or ratio expressed as a fraction of 100.
if we have to convert percentage into fraction than it is divide by 100.
a percentage is a number or ratio expressed as a fraction of 100.
if we have to convert percentage into fraction than it is divide by 100.
Example 1 : if we write 45% then its equal to
45/100 or in fraction 9/20 or in decimal 0.45
if we have to convert fraction into percentage we have to multiple with 100.
Example 2 : if we write 3/5 in fraction it is equal to 60%
3/5x100=60.
READ AND LEARN FOLLOWING TABLE as also known as conversion table of percentage. Learn this table it help you a lot to solve many problem.
the following fraction in red colour are MOST IMPORTANT.

by this conversion table we can change fraction into percentage and percentage into fraction
EX: if we have to find 2/5 in %?
In the table we know
that 1/5=20%
then, if we multiply both by 2
then we have 1/5x2 = 2x20%
answer is 2/5 = 40%
so, you only to know basic fraction and percentage that given above.
in the inverse
Ex. If we have to find out 1/15 fraction in percentage%?
then, if we multiply both by 2
then we have 1/5x2 = 2x20%
answer is 2/5 = 40%
so, you only to know basic fraction and percentage that given above.
in the inverse
Ex. If we have to find out 1/15 fraction in percentage%?
In the table we have
1/5 = 20%
then both side
multiple by 1/3
we get 1/15 = 6.66%
SOME BASIC QUESTION THAT IS ALWAYS ASKED IN THE EXAMS
SOME BASIC QUESTION THAT IS ALWAYS ASKED IN THE EXAMS
TYPE 1.
if there is increase of X% and subsequently X% decrease then there is always loss / decrease in the condition.
ex. If rohan salary is increase by 50% and subsequently decrease by 50%. How much percentage loss?
ans. By trick  50x50/100= 25% decrease/loss
TYPE 2.
if A is P% more than B. then B is less than by A
with P/(100+P)x100
if there is increase of X% and subsequently X% decrease then there is always loss / decrease in the condition.
ex. If rohan salary is increase by 50% and subsequently decrease by 50%. How much percentage loss?
ans. By trick  50x50/100= 25% decrease/loss
TYPE 2.
if A is P% more than B. then B is less than by A
with P/(100+P)x100
ex. If radha earning is 25% more than sita. Then sita earning is how many percentage less then by radha?ans. By trick  25/(100+25)x100=20%
TYPE 3.
If A is P% less than
B. then B is more than by A
with P/(100P)x100
with P/(100P)x100
ex. If golu age is 20% less than gita than gita age is how many percentage more than golu?
ans. By trick  20/(10020)x100=25%
TYPE 4.
if there is p% increase in price . how much % decrease his consumption so that his expenditure on it does not change.
formula P/(100+P)x100
ex. If petrol price increase by 25%. How much percentage a person reduced his consumption so that his expenditure on it does not increase?
ans. 25/(100+25)x100=20%
if there is p% increase in price . how much % decrease his consumption so that his expenditure on it does not change.
formula P/(100+P)x100
ex. If petrol price increase by 25%. How much percentage a person reduced his consumption so that his expenditure on it does not increase?
ans. 25/(100+25)x100=20%
TYPE 5.
if there is p% decrease in price . how much % increase his consumption so that his expenditure on it does not change.
formula P/(100P)x100
ex. If there is 30% decrease in eggs price. How much a person increased his consumption so that his expenditure on it does not increase?
ans. 30/(10030)x100=42.85
TYPE 6.
Ex. If suman need 36%
minimum mark to passed a exam but she score 24% mark and fail by 9 marks. What
is the total mark?
ans. Difference in % = difference in mark
ans. Difference in % = difference in mark
In that 36%24%=12%
that is 12%=9marks
so, total mark = 9/12x100= 75
that is 12%=9marks
so, total mark = 9/12x100= 75
Cube
roots tricks, math shortcut tricks, find cube from 1 to 99 of given number
In
banking and many other exam there is many question related to cube roots. In
exam specially banking 23 question are related to cube roots.
In banking hard digit like 373248, 941192, 91125 etc are
given and we have to find the cube of that number This is time consuming
chapter in mathematics. We are providing shortcut tricks to find cube roots of
a given number.
First we need to learn this following table carefully

Profit
And Loss Short Tricks
These type of question are time consuming but we have to manage
our time in the examination hall.
Type 1: The ratio of the cost price and the selling price is
4:5. The profit percent is?
a. 10
b. 20
c. 25 d. 30
Ans: 25
profit is always calculated on cost price
so, c.p=4 , s.p=5 Profit=s.pc.p, 54=1
profit %= profit/cost price * 100, then, 1/4*100= 25
profit is always calculated on cost price
so, c.p=4 , s.p=5 Profit=s.pc.p, 54=1
profit %= profit/cost price * 100, then, 1/4*100= 25
Type 2: If on selling 12 notebooks a seller makes a profit
equal to selling price of 4 notebook, what is his profits percentage?
a. 16.2/3
b. 25
c. 50
d. None of these Ans:50
if there is profit on selling item = selling price of an article
if there is profit on selling item = selling price of an article
To find profit %,
simply minus 12 from 4= 8
Profit % =
4/8*100=50
Type 3: A vender loses the selling price of 4 oranges on
selling 36 oranges his loss percentage is?
a. 10
b. 11.1/9
c. 12.1/2 d. None of these Ans:10
if there is loss on selling item = selling price of an article
to find loss%, simply add 36 to 4 = 40
if there is loss on selling item = selling price of an article
to find loss%, simply add 36 to 4 = 40
Loss % = 4/40*100 = 40
Type 4: Some article were brought of 6 for rs. 5. And
sold at 5 for rs. 6. Gain percentage is/
a. 30 b. 33.1/3 c. 35
d. 44
Ans:44
Type 5: A vender by selling 12 toffee for a rupee. A man loses
20%. How many for a rupee should he sell to get a gain of 20%? a. 10
b. 20
c. 8
d. 12
Ans: 8
12 toffee for rs 1 loss 20% then
c.p = 1*100/80 = 5/4 on this price we have to gain profit of 20%
So, 5/4* 120/100 = 3/2
If for Rs. 2/3 we have 12 toffee then for rs 1 we have = 12x2/3=8
12 toffee for rs 1 loss 20% then
c.p = 1*100/80 = 5/4 on this price we have to gain profit of 20%
So, 5/4* 120/100 = 3/2
If for Rs. 2/3 we have 12 toffee then for rs 1 we have = 12x2/3=8
Type 6: A sell a bicycle of to B at a profit of 20%. B sell it
to C at profit of 25%. If C pays rs. 225 for it the cost price of bicycle is?
a. 110
b. 120
c. 125
d. 150
Ans: 150
let cost price be X then, x.120/100 . 125/100= 225 ,
by solving, then X equal to 150
let cost price be X then, x.120/100 . 125/100= 225 ,
by solving, then X equal to 150
Type 7: A shopkeeper professes to sell his goods at cost price
but uses a weight of 800gm instead of 1kg. thus he makes a profit of?

sold at a gain of 5% yields rs. 15 more
than when sold at a loss of 5%. Its cost
price would be
a. 150 b. 200 c. 250 d. 300
Ans:150
difference between gain % and loss% equal to 10%
then, 10% = rs. 15, 100% = rs. 150 , that is your cost price
then, 10% = rs. 15, 100% = rs. 150 , that is your cost price
Type 10: The price of an
article has been reduced by 25%. In order to restore the
original price the reduced price must be increased by?
a. 25% b. 30% c. 33% d. 33.1/3% Ans:33.1/3%
Type 11: An article was sold at 16% gain. Had it been sold for
rs. 200 more, the gain would have been 20% then the cost price of the article
is?
a. 5000
b. 4800
c. 4500
d. 5200 Ans : 5000
difference in gain % equal to 200, Then 20%16%=4%
4%= 200 then, 100%= 5000 that is your cost price of the article
difference in gain % equal to 200, Then 20%16%=4%
4%= 200 then, 100%= 5000 that is your cost price of the article
