**Steve**, Friday, December 21, 2012 at 3:07pmcost: 300/12 * 50 = 1250

12% profit = 150

so, he needs total sales of 1400

1st 200: 200/10 * 50 = 1000

the remaining 100 apples must sell for 400, or Rs40 each

**Reiny**, Friday, December 21, 2012 at 3:08pmcost price per apple = 50/12 = 25/6

total paid for the 300 apples = 300(25/6) = 1250

to have an overall profit of 12%,

the total selling price must be 1.12(1250) = 1400

so far he sold 200 at 50/10

so far he took in 200(50/10) = 1000

so he needs to make Rs 400 on the remaining 100 apples

or

400/100 =**Rs 4 per apple**

check:

200 apples @ Rs 5 = 1000

100 apples @ Rs 4 = 400

total = 1400
