Solution -

1. **Answer: 2. 90%**

**Explanation :**

**Aakash’s profit = 6x+y = 6*2500+7500 = 22500**

**Billu’s profit = 12x-5000 = 12*2500-5000 = 25000**

**Required percentage = 22500/25000 =( 9/10)*100 = 90%**

2. Answer: 4. 45:50:75:82

Explanation:

Aakash’s profit = 6x+y = 6*2500+7500 = 22500

Billu’s profit = 12x-5000 = 12*2500-5000 = 25000

Chandan’s profit = 15x = 37500

Deepak’s profit = 18x-8000+z = 18*2500-8000+4000 = 41000

Ratio of profits = 225:250:375:410 = 45:50:75:82
