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.

Answer :

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


= Rs.7680


And,



= Rs.7840


the remaining % of mangoes = (100 - 70)% = 30%



= Rs.1920


the total amount she got by selling(selling price) = 7840 + 1920


= Rs.9760


Now, selling price(S.P)> cost price(C.P) Gain


And, Gain = S.P - C.P


= 9760 - 7680


= Rs. 2080




Gain % = 27.08%
