# Lemons were bought at Rs 48 per dozen and sold at the rate of Rs 40 per 10. Find the gain or loss per cent

**Solution:**

Cost Price(CP) of one lemon = Rs. 48/12 = Rs. 4/lemon

Selling Price(SP) of one lemon = Rs. 40/10 = Rs. 4.00/lemon

Profit/Gain = Rs. 4.00 - Rs. 4.00 = Rs. 0.00

Profit/Gain% =[ Profit/CP] × 100

Profit/Gain% = [0/4] × 100 = 0%

Therefore no loss no gain

**✦ ****Try This: **Lemons were bought at Rs 60 per dozen and sold at the rate of Rs 42 per 6. Find the gain or loss per cent.

Cost Price(CP) of one lemon = Rs. 60/12 = Rs.5/lemon

Selling Price(SP) of one lemon = Rs. 42/6 = Rs. 7.00/lemon

Profit/Gain = Rs. 7.00 - Rs. 5.00 = Rs. 2.00

Profit/Gain% =[ Profit/CP] × 100

Profit/Gain% = [2.0/5.] × 100 = 40%
