**Reiny**, Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 12:49pmcost to buy = 100(20) = rs 2000

a profit of 15% is rs 300

so his return must be rs 2300

selling price of remaining apples --- rs x/kg

so...

.93(20)(40) + x(60) = 2300

60x = 2300 - 744

x = 25.93

check:

a loss of 7% ---> sold at .93(20) or 18.6

so 40(18.6) + 60(25.93) = 2299.8 , close enough
