Is my method right for this question?

If not then send me a right answer?


Plss fast

Dear student,
your method is not correct. This question can be solved as follows:
C.P. Of Each Egg = 32/12 = Rs 8/3
 
S.P. Of Each Egg = 10/3 = Rs 10/3
 
As S.P.> C.P.  So, there is a profit.
 
Profit% = (Profit/C.P.) × 100
 
Profit = (10/3)-(8/3) = 2/3
 
C.P. = 8/3
 
Substitute Values
 
Profit% = {(2/3) /( 8/3)} ×100 = 25%.

​​​​​​​Regards.
