profit on shirt material: 10% of 50 = 5.00/meter

profit on trouser: 12% of 90 = 10.8/meter

If he buys s meters of shirt, t meters of trouser, then

2s = 3t

1.10s + 1.12t = 36660

Hmmm. I expected to get integer values, but did not. Better check my math and the problem.

Cost of 1m shirt material=Rs50

Cost of 1m trouser material=Rs90

Let Has an buys shirt material =3x

Hasan buys trouser material =2x

Cost of shirt material cloth=Rs50Ã—3x=150x

Cost of trouser material cloth =Rs90 Ã—2x=150x

S.P. of shirt material =C.P.Ã—(100+P%)Ã·100

=150xÃ—(100+12%)Ã·100

=150xÃ—112Ã·

=168x

S.P. of trouser material=C.P.Ã—(100+P%)Ã·100

=180xÃ—(100+10%)Ã·100

=180xÃ—110Ã·100

=198x

Total Sale =36600

=168x +198x=36600

=366x=36600

=Ã—=100

=Hasan buys trouser material =2x

=2Ã—100

=200metre

Let measure of shirt material be 3x and measure of grouse be 2x.

Cost of 3xm shirt material= 3x×50=150x

Cost of 2xm grouse material= 2x×90=180×

Selling price of the shirt material=150x×112/100

Selling price of the trouser material=180x×110/100

Total selling price=150×112/100+180x×110/100=36600=366x=36600/360=100

Trouser material he buyed=2×100=200
