Sum

Ms. Saraswati was paid ₹ 88,000 as a commission on the sale of computers at the rate of 12.5%. If the price of each computer was ₹ 32,000, how many computers did she sell?

#### Solution

Price of a computer = ₹ 32,000

Rate of commission = 12.5%

Commission for one computer

= 32,000 × 12.5%

= ₹ 4,000

Total commission earned is ₹ 88,000.

Number of total computers sold

= "Total commission"/"Commission per Computers"

= 88000/4000 = 22

∴ 22 Computers were sold to get a total commission of ₹ 88,000
