# Kirti bookstore sold books worth ₹ 2,85,891 in the first week of June and books worth ₹ 4,00,768 in the second week of the month. How much was the sale for the two weeks together? In which week was the sale greater and by how much?

**Solution:**

We will be using the concepts of whole numbers and the addition and subtraction of numbers to solve the given problem.

Cost of books sold by Kirti bookstore in the first week of June = Rs. 285891

Cost of books sold by Kirti bookstore in the second week of June = Rs. 400768

Total number of books sold by the bookstore in both weeks of June together = Rs. 285891 + Rs. 400768 = Rs 686659

We see that in the second week of June the sale of books was higher.

The number of extra books that were sold in the second week = Rs. 400768 – Rs. 285891 = Rs.114877

Thus, sales in the second week of June were Rs.114877 more than in the first week of June.
