8th me cp 27 kse hua

bhai ye method to muje bi smj nhi aaya mne apna method use kiya

5 = 3rs

5 = 4rs

total = 10 = 7rs purchase kr rha h

4rs m 5 sell kr rha h an equal kr do dono ko

(4) 10 = 7 (4) = 40 = 28

(7) 05= 4 (7) = 35 = 24

40/35*100 = 14 (2/7)%

Ok got it..thnks nd am girl…?

upps srry kuz mention nhi aapke name k aage so 😛

btw ur always wlc :))))

see here an alternate method iif u didnt got the concept…:)

since toffees are in numbers of 5 so take any no.which is is a multiple of 5

let it be 10 ie 10 toffees each

now 5 toffees for 3

=> 10 toffes for 6

similarly

5 toffees for 4

=>10 toffees for 8

=> total cp =14

now

5 toffees for 4

=> 20 toffees for 16 => sp =16,cp =14

=> profit =2 & p% =2/14*100 =14(2/7)%
