Sum

A shop-keeper bought 300 eggs at 80 paise each. 30 eggs were broken in a transaction and then he sold the remaining eggs at one rupee each. Find, his gain or loss as a percent.

#### Solution

C.P. of 300 eggs @ 80 paise each

= 300 × 80 = 24000 paise = Rs.240

No. of eggs which were broken in transaction = 30

Remaining eggs = 300 − 30

= 270

S.P. of eggs @ Rs.1 each = 270 × 1= Rs.270

Gain = S.P. − C.P.

= Rs.270 − Rs.240 = Rs.30

Gain% ="Gain"/"C.P."xx100

=30/240xx100

=100/8%=12.5%
