A trader uses a 110 cm scale instead of 1m while buying cloth and uses 90 cm scale instead of 1m while selling the cloth at cost price. He further provides 10% discount. What is his overall profit percentage?

Ans: 10%

Let the actual cost price of 1m of cloth be Rs.x

Effective C.P of 1 cm of cloth = x/110

S.P of 1 cm of cloth before discount= x/90

S.P of 1 cm of cloth after discount = (x/90) * 0.9 = x/100

Profit = x/100 - x/110= x/1100

Profit % = 100 * (x/1100)/(x/110) = 100 * 1/10 = 10%

Let the actual cost price of 1m of cloth be Rs.x

Effective C.P of 1 cm of cloth = x/110

S.P of 1 cm of cloth before discount= x/90

S.P of 1 cm of cloth after discount = (x/90) * 0.9 = x/100

Profit = x/100 - x/110= x/1100

Profit % = 100 * (x/1100)/(x/110) = 100 * 1/10 = 10%
