# Babita bought 160 kg of mangoes at Rs 48 per kg. She sold 70% of the mangoes at Rs 70 per kg and the remaining mangoes at Rs 40 per kg. Find Babita’s gain or loss per cent on the whole dealing

**Solution:**

Babita sold 70% of 160 kgs at Rs 70/kg

70% of 160 kg = 112 kg

Amount received by selling 112 kg of mangoes @ Rs. 70/kg

= 112 × 70

= Rs.7840

The remaining amount of mangoes i.e. 48 kg @ Rs 40/kg

Amount received by selling the remaining 48 kgs @ Rs. 40/kg

= 48 kg × Rs. 40/kg

= Rs. 1920

Total Amount received by selling 160 Kg

= Rs. 7840 + Rs. 1920

= Rs. 9760

Babita bought 160 kg @ 48 per kg and hence the total cost incurred is:

Cost of 160 Kg of mangoes = Rs. 160 × 48

= Rs. 7680

Profit made by Babita by selling 160 Kg of mangoes

= 9760 - 7680

= Rs. 2080

Profit or Gain % = (2080/7680) × 100

= 27.08%

≅ 27%
