Asked by Take It

A shopkeeper purchased 60 kg of tea at rupees 120 per kg and mixed it with 40 kg of tea costing rupees 200 per kg at what rate per kg must he sell this mixture to make a profit of 20%?

First let’s find her total costs: 60 * 120 = 7200 40 * 200 = 8000 Total Cost = 7200 + 8000 = 15200 At a per kg level thia is calculated by doing 15200 / 100 = 152 per kg A 20% profit means that she has to sell at a price that is 20% more than 152. 152 x 1.2 = 182.4 per kg She must sell at approximately 183 rupees per kg to turn a 20% profit.
