Babita bought 160 kg of mangoes at Rs 48 per kg. She sold 70% of the mangoes at Rs 70 per kg and the remaining mangoes at Rs 40 per kg. Find Babita’s gain or loss per cent on the whole dealing.
Given that, Babita bought 160 kg of mangoes at Rs.48 per kg. and sold 70% of mangoes at Rs.70 per kg and the remaining mangoes at Rs.40 per kg.
⇒ total amount she paid(cost pice) = 48 × 160
⇒ the remaining % of mangoes = (100 - 70)% = 30%
∴ the total amount she got by selling(selling price) = 7840 + 1920
Now,∵ selling price(S.P)> cost price(C.P) ⇒ Gain
And, Gain = S.P - C.P
= 9760 - 7680
= Rs. 2080
⇒ Gain % = 27.08%
