Sum

The combined cost price of a refrigerator and a mixture is Rs. 12400. If the refrigerator costs 600% more than the mixer, find the cost price of the mixture.

#### Solution

Let  ₹ x be the cost price of the mixer.

The cost price of the refrigerator

= "x" + 600/100 "x" = x + 6x = 7x

Total cost price = 12400 .......…[Given]

i.e. x + 7x = 12400

i.e. 8x = 12400

∴ "x" = 12400/8 = 1550

∴ The cost price of mixer is ₹ 1550.
