Fill in the Blanks

The loss percent on selling 140 geometry boxes at the loss of S.P. of 10 geometry boxes is equal to ______.

#### Solution

The loss percent on selling 140 geometry boxes at the loss of S.P. of 10 geometry boxes is equal to 6 2/3 %.

Explanation:

Let the selling price of 1 geometry box be Rs. 1.

So, the selling price for 140 geometry boxes = Rs.1 × 140 = Rs.140

Similarly, selling price of 10 geometry boxes = Rs. 1 × 10 = Rs. 10 v

Loss = Selling price of 10 geometry boxes = Rs.10

∴ Loss percentage = "Loss"/"CP" xx 100

= 10/(140 + 10) xx 100

= 10/150 xx 100

= 20/3%

= 6 2/3%
