Sum

A fruit-seller sells 4 oranges for Rs. 3, gaining 50%. Find :
(i) C.P. of 4 oranges,
(ii) C.P. of one orange.
(iii) S.P. of one orange.
(iv) profit made by selling one orange.
(v) a number of oranges brought and sold in order to gain Rs. 24.

#### Solution

S.P.of 4 oranges = Rs.3

∴ S.P. of 1 orange = Rs.3/4, Gain = 50%

S.P. =("C.P."xx150)/100

∴ C.P. of 1 orange = (100xx"S.P.")/((100+50))

(100xx3/4)/150=75/150

= Rs.1/2

(i) C.P. of 4 orange = 4xx1/2 = Rs.2

(ii) C.P. of 1 orange = Rs.1/2 = Rs. (0.50)

(iii) S.P. of 1 orange = Rs. 3/4 = Rs.0.75

(iv) Profit made by selling one orange

="Rs."3/4-"Rs."1/2="Rs."1/4="Rs."0.25

(v) If gain is Rs. 1/4, number of oranges = 1

If gain is Rs. 24, number of oranges =1/(4/1)xx24

1xx4/1xx24=96
