100 orng = 350 rs

1 orng = 3.5 rs.

12 orng ( 1 dozen) = 3.5 *12 = 42 rs.

cop of 1 dozen 42

aND sp of 1 dozen 48.

p% = 6/42*100= 100/7.

I.E 4*2/7.

1 orng = 3.5 rs.

12 orng ( 1 dozen) = 3.5 *12 = 42 rs.

cop of 1 dozen 42

aND sp of 1 dozen 48.

p% = 6/42*100= 100/7.

I.E 4*2/7.

SP of 12 oranges is 48.

SP of 1 Orange is 4.

Sp of 100 oranges is 400.

Gain= sp - cp = 400 - 350 = 50.

Gain% = 50 * 100/350 = ans(A)

SP of 1 Orange is 4.

Sp of 100 oranges is 400.

Gain= sp - cp = 400 - 350 = 50.

Gain% = 50 * 100/350 = ans(A)

Simple one:

If selling prize for 12 orange is Rs 48;

Then the selling prize for 100 orange is ?

Therefore, sp=(100*48) /12,

=400.

Here, the sp is more than cp so it is profit.

i.e, profit= 400 - 350 = 50.

Profit percentage= (50/350) *100= 14(2/7).

Here 100 oranges =350.

So c.p of 100 oranges =350.

S.p= 48/12=4.

1 orange of s.p is 4 rupees and 100 oranges of s.p is 400,

We know the formula p= 400-350=50,

%p=50/350*100=100/7,

I.e 100/7= 14*2/7.

So c.p of 100 oranges =350.

S.p= 48/12=4.

1 orange of s.p is 4 rupees and 100 oranges of s.p is 400,

We know the formula p= 400-350=50,

%p=50/350*100=100/7,

I.e 100/7= 14*2/7.

1 dozen = 12.

C.P of 100 oranges = 350.

S.P of 12 oranges = 48.

C.P of 12 oranges = (350/100)*12 = 42.

Profit percentage = (48-42)/42*100 = 14 2/7.

C.P of 100 oranges = 350.

S.P of 12 oranges = 48.

C.P of 12 oranges = (350/100)*12 = 42.

Profit percentage = (48-42)/42*100 = 14 2/7.

1 orange =350/100 = 3.50.

SP of orange = 48/12 = 4,

%gain = profit/CP * 100.

%gain =0.50/3.50 * 100=14 2/7.

SP of orange = 48/12 = 4,

%gain = profit/CP * 100.

%gain =0.50/3.50 * 100=14 2/7.

C.P of 100 oranges = 350,

S.P of 100 oranges = 48 per dozen,

48/12 = 4.

S.P of 100 oranges = 100 X 4 = 400,

Then, difference is 400 - 350 = 50,

50/350 X 100 = 14.27 Ans.

S.P of 100 oranges = 48 per dozen,

48/12 = 4.

Then, difference is 400 - 350 = 50,

100 orange =350rps.

C.p of 1 orange= 350/100 = 3.50.

S.p =Rs 48 per dozens.

It means s.p of 1orange = 48/12.

The s.p of 1 orange = 4.

Now,

S.p of 1 orange =4.

C.p of 1 orange =3.50.

Gain = S.P - C.P.

=4 - 3.50.

=0.5.

Gain% = (Gain * 100/C.p),

= (0.5*100/3.5),

= 14.27.

C.p of 1 orange= 350/100 = 3.50.

S.p =Rs 48 per dozens.

It means s.p of 1orange = 48/12.

The s.p of 1 orange = 4.

Now,

S.p of 1 orange =4.

C.p of 1 orange =3.50.

Gain = S.P - C.P.

=4 - 3.50.

=0.5.

Gain% = (Gain * 100/C.p),

= (0.5*100/3.5),

= 14.27.

@Dhiraj shah.

SP of 1 orange = 48/12 => 4 (1 dozen =12 oranges).

CP of 1 0range = 350/100 => 3.5.

profit = 4-3.5 (SP -CP) => 0.5.

profit % = (0.5/3.5)*100=14 *2/7.

SP of 1 orange = 48/12 => 4 (1 dozen =12 oranges).

CP of 1 0range = 350/100 => 3.5.

profit = 4-3.5 (SP -CP) => 0.5.

profit % = (0.5/3.5)*100=14 *2/7.
