An important question from linear equations in two variables as it was already asked in various examinations in which we have to find the value of a chair and a table if the total selling price of a chair and a table is 1520 and the profit % in a 10% on chair and 15% on table and if the profit% is 10% on chair and 25% on table then the total selling price is 1535.

Kindly solve the above problem

  1. Let the cost of chair be x and cost of table be y.

      As per the question,

      25x+22y=30400                —— ( 1 )
       And also from the question, we get
       22y+25y=30700           —— ( 2 )
       Now, Multiply equation ( 1 ) with 22 and equation ( 2 ) with 25 we get,
      550x+484y=668800          —–  ( 3 )
      550x+625y=767500           —— ( 4 )
       Now, subtracting equation ( 2 ) by ( 1 ) we get,
      Substituting value of y in equation ( 1 ) we get,
      Cost price of chair is Rs.600 and cost price of table is Rs.700.
