## DAV Class 5 Maths Ch 11 Worksheet 3 Solutions

Question 1.
Complete the table by filling in the column of the selling price. The first one is done for you.

Solution:
(b) Loss = ₹ 11
S.P. = C.P. – Loss
= ₹ 85 – ₹ 11
= ₹ 74

(c) C.P. = ₹ 480
Profit = ₹ 75
S.P. = C.P. + Profit
= ₹ 480 + ₹ 75
= ₹ 555

(d) C.P. = ₹ 1,200
Loss = ₹ 195
S.P. = C.P. – Loss
= ₹ 1,200 – ₹ 195
= ₹ 1,005

(e) C.P. = ₹ 4,250
Profit = ₹ 300
S.P. = C.P. + Profit
= ₹ 4,250 + ₹ 300
= ₹ 4,550

S.P. of watch = C.P. + Gain
= ₹ 505 + ₹ 60
= ₹ 565
