A merchant buys two books for Rs. 7500. One book he sells at a profit of 16% and the other book at 14% loss. In the deal, the merchant makes neither any profit nor any loss. What is the difference between the selling price of both the books?

Correct

Answer – 1. Rs. 620 Explanation:
C.P – X
Other book – Rs.(7500 – X)
C.P = S.P
=> X(116/100) + (7500-X)*(86/100) = 7500
=> 30X = 105000 => X = 3500
Required difference between selling prices
= Rs. [(3500/100) x 116] – [(4000/100) x 86]
= 4060-3440 = Rs. 620

Incorrect

Answer – 1. Rs. 620 Explanation:
C.P – X
Other book – Rs.(7500 – X)
C.P = S.P
=> X(116/100) + (7500-X)*(86/100) = 7500
=> 30X = 105000 => X = 3500
Required difference between selling prices
= Rs. [(3500/100) x 116] – [(4000/100) x 86]
= 4060-3440 = Rs. 620
