by selling 90 computer a shopkeeper gains the amount which is equal to the selling price of 10 computer find the profit percent ? had he purchased them for rupees 30000 each what would have been the selling price of a computer ??

  • math -

    if he purchases them for p and sells them for s,

    90(s-p) = 10s
    90s - 90p = 10s
    80s = 90p
    s = 9/8 p = 1.125p
    so profit is 12.5%

    9/8 * 30000 = 33750
