# By mixing two qualities of pulses in the ratio 2: 3 and selling the mixture at the rate of Rs 22 per kilogram, a shopkeeper makes a profit of 10 %. If the cost of the smaller quantity be Rs 14 per kg, the cost per kg of the larger quantity is:

 A) Rs 23 B) Rs 25 C) Rs 24 D) Nonof these

Explanation:

Cost Price of 5 kg = Rs.(14*2 + x*3) = (28 + 3x).

Sell price of 5 kg = Rs. (22x5) = Rs. 110.

[{110 - (28 + 3x)}/(28 + 3x) ]* 100 =10

[82-3x/28 + 3x]= 1 / 10

820 - 30x = 28 +3x

33x = 792

x = 24
