On selling 36 ora

Answer :

Let cost price and selling price of one orange be Rs. c and Rs. s respectively.


Cost Price of 36 oranges = 36 × c = 36c and


Selling Price of 36 oranges = 36 × s = 36s


Given Loss = Selling Price of 4 oranges


Loss = 4s


But, we know Loss = Cost Price – Selling Price


4s = 36c – 36s


40s = 36c



We have,





But, s = 0.9c




Thus, loss percentage is 10 (that is 10% loss).
