Sameer bought 1600 bananas at Rs 3.75 a dozen. He sold 900 of them at 2 for Rs1 and remaining at 5 for Rs2 . Find the Gain or Loss percent.Find the C.P and S.P and compare.

Find the C.P and S.P and compare.

CP of 1 banana = Re. 0.3125

CP of 1600 bananas = Rs. 500

**SP of 900 bananas :**

SP of 2 bananas = Re. 1

SP of 1 banana = Re. 0.50

SP of 900 bananas = Rs. 450

**SP of 700 bananas :**

SP of 5 bananas = Rs. 2

SP of 1 banana = Re. 0.40

SP of 700 bananas = Rs. 280

Total SP of 1600 bananas = Rs. 730

Since SP > CP, so there will be profit.

Profit = SP - CP = 730 - 500 = Rs. 230

$\mathrm{profit}\%=\left[\frac{\mathrm{profit}}{\mathrm{CP}}\times 100\right]\%=\left[\frac{230}{500}\times 100\right]\%=46\%$
