A fruit vendor buys 300 apples at Rs 50 per dozen. The vendor sold 200 of them at Rs 50 per 10 apples. At what rate per apple should the vendor sell the remaining apples to make an overall profit of 12% ?

  • maths --plse help me.. - ,

    cost: 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

  • maths --plse help me.. - ,

    cost 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
