# A tea merchant bl

Given, ratio of blended two varieties of tea = 5:4

And cost of green tea = 200 per kg

And cost of lemon tea = 300 per kg

SP of blended tea = 275 per kg

Let green tea be 5x kg and lemon be 4x kg

Cost of lemon tea = 4x × 300 = 1200x

Cost of green tea = 5x × 200 = 1000x

Total CP = 1000x + 1200x = 2200x

Total quantitiy = 4X + 5X = 9X

SP of blended tea = 275 × 9x = 2475x

CP <SP

So, there is profit on blended tea

Profit = SP-CP

= 2475x – 2200x = 275x

Profit% = × 100%

= × 100%

= = 12.5%
