Solution

Cost price of one mixer Rs. 4300.
Hence cost price of 35 mixers = 4300 × 35 = Rs. 150500

Total cost price = cost of mixers + cost of transport
= 150500 + 2100
= Rs. 152600

Javedbhai wants a profit of 21000 rupees.
∴ Hence, amount expected on selling = 152600 + 21000 = Rs. 173600

Selling price of 35 mixers = Rs. 173600

∴ Selling price of one mixer = 173600 ÷ 35 = Rs. 4960

Javedbhai should sell every mixer for Rs. 4960.
