By mixing two qualities of pulses in the ratio 2: 3 and selling the mixture at the rate of Rs 22 per kilogram, a shopkeeper makes a profit of 10 %. If the cost of the smaller quantity be Rs 14 per kg, the cost per kg of the larger quantity is:
Option 1) Rs 23Option 2) Rs 25Option 3) Rs 24Option 4) None Option 5) Rs 22

Profit % =

Let MP = 100
CP = 70
S = 70 1.25 = 87.5
Now 87.5 % = 8750
MP = 100% = 10000

Diff = 1920 - 1280 = 640
CP lies b/w both SP's
CP =
New SP = 1600 1.25 = 2000

SP = 720
New SP = 510
Difference = 720 - 510
Now P : L = 1 : 2
P =
Then CP = 720 - 70 = 650

CP = 600
SP = 600 1.20 =720
.9 MP = 720
MP = 800

CP = 210
SP = 210 1.2 = 252
MP =

SP = 3450 at profit 15%
CP = = 3000
By options checking © 4050
If SP=4050 at loss 10%
Then CP = = 4500
Now both CP and SP makes balance with no profit no loss

Let MP = 100
CP to retailer = 80
SP to retailer = 95
Profit = 15
Customer paid = 38 , It means 95 = 38 , 100 = 40
If MP = 40
Profit =
