The selling price of a book at 10% discount = 400*90/100=360

Selling price = Rs.400 — 10% of Rs.400 = Rs.360.

S.P/C.P.= (100+ gain %)/100.

or, Rs.360/C.P. = (100+12)/100.

or, C.P = Rs.360×(100/112) = Rs. 2250/7 =Rs.321.43. Answer.

A shopkeeper earns a profit of 12% on selling a book at 10% discount on the printed price. What is the ratio of the cost price and the printed price of the book?

In such cases, just assume the printed price PP as 100.

He is offering 10% discount meaning Selling Price SP is 90

He is earning 12% profit after selling it for 90 which means cost price CP = 90/1.12

Now CP / PP = (90/1.12)/100 = 90/112 = 45/56

Why is it that all Indian web businesses are copies of businesses in mature markets?

Why is this surprising? The web was invented and matured elsewhere. Leading e-commerce portals started in the US and the concept was adopted in other geographies as their Internet penetration grew. The e-commerce models that withstood the test of time were replicated elsewhere, including in India.

India has had its share of homegrown e-commerce success. The Indian Railways site with online ticket booking comes to mind. Additionally, the Cash on Delivery model is being perfected in India and is seldom used in the west.
