A grocer has a sale of Rs.6435, Rs.6927, Rs.6855, Rs.7230 and Rs.6562 for 5 consecutive months. How much sale must he have in the sixth month so that he gets an average sale of Rs.6500?

Explanation:
Total sale for 5 months = Rs. (6435 + 6927 + 6855 + 7230 + 6562) = Rs. 34009.
Required sale = Rs. [ (6500 x 6) - 34009 ]
= Rs. (39000 - 34009)
= Rs. 4991.

If Rs.10 be allowed as true discount on a bill of Rs. 110 due at the end of a certain time, then the discount allowed on the same sum due at the end of double the time is:

Explanation:
S.I. on Rs. (110 - 10) for a certain time = Rs. 10.
S.I. on Rs. 100 for double the time = Rs. 20.
T.D. on Rs. 120 = Rs. (120 - 100) = Rs. 20.
T.D. on Rs. 110 = Rs. (20/12*110) = Rs 18.33 120
