Answer :

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%
