A manufacturer makes a profit of 15% by selling a colour TV for ₹6,900. If the cost of manufacturing increases by 30% and the price paid by the retailer is increased by 20%, find the percentage of profit made by the manufacturer.
A
6.15%
B
7.25%
C
6.75%
D
8.50%
Question 73 Explanation: 
For the manufacturer
Profit% = (SP-CP)/CP *100
15/100 = (6900-CP)/CP
0.15*CP = 6900 - CP
1.15*CP = 6900
CP = Rs 6000

Now, if CP increased by 30%
i.e. CP' = CP + 30%CP
CP' = 6000 + 0.3*6000 = Rs 7800

Also, the SP increases by 20%
hence SP' = 6900 + 20% of 6900 =Rs 8280
hence new profit = SP' - CP' = 8280-7800=480
hence, profit % = Profit/CP' *100
= (480/7800) *100
= 6.15%
