  1. Well if

    1dozen of egg is sold for $300

    Then 10 dozen would cost =300×10=$3000

    For the whole of the her purchase she made a profit of 10%

    10/100=(sp-3000)/3000

    300=sp-3000

    Sp=$3300

    20 out of the 10 dozen of egg are bad how much was she selling?

    1dozen of egg=12egg

    10dozen=120egg

    Remaining eggs=120-20=100egg

    If 100eggs are sold for 3300

    1egg would be sold for 3300/100=$33
