Question 115

# The profit earned by the sale of the vegetable in district F is 25%. The sale price being ₹ 10000 per tonne, how much money was spent on fertilizers?

Solution

The profit earned by the sale of the vegetable in district F is 25%. The sale price being ₹10000 per tonne, then money was spent on fertilizers:

Total selling price in district F = 1.88*10000 = 18800*10^6

S.P. = (1+P%)*C.P              (C.P. = cost price)

C.P. = 100/125 * 18800*10^6

C.P. = 150.4 * 10^8

Money was spent on Fertilizers = 18% of CP

0.18*150.4 * 10^8

= 27.072 * 10^8

= ₹ 2707200000

= 27.2 crore
