By selling 144 hens, kamal lost s.p. of 6 hens. find his loss%. had he purchased them for rs 7200. what would have been the s.p. of one hen

Answers (1)

Let selling price of one hen is SP.

Total Selling price of 144 hens = Rs 144SP 
Loss = 6SP 

Total Cost Price = Total Sellling PriceP + Loss = 144SP + 6SP = 150SP
Loss percentage = (Toal Loss/Total Cost Price) x 100 = (6SP/150SP) X 100

                          = 4 %
Now if Cost Price of 144 hens = Rs. 7200.
Selling Price of 144 hens at 4% loss = [1-0.04]xCP = 0.96 CP
                                                       = 0.96x7200 = Rs.6912 
Hence selling price of one hen = 6912/144 = Rs.48
