# Last Year, Oranges Were Available at Rs. 24 per Dozen; but this Year, They Are Available at Rs. 50 per Score. Find the Percentage Change in the Price of Oranges. - Mathematics

Sum

Last year, oranges were available at Rs. 24 per dozen; but this year, they are available at Rs. 50 per score. Find the percentage change in the price of oranges.

#### Solution

Price of 1 orange = (24)/(12) = Rs.2

New price = (50)/(20) = Rs.2.50   ...[∵ 1 score = 20]

Increase in price  = Rs.2.5 - Rs.2.0 = Rs. 0.50

∴ % Change in price (increase)

= (0.50)/(2) xx 100  = 0.50 x 50 = 25%

Is there an error in this question or solution?
