A grocer bought 24Kg of coffee beans at price X. After a [#permalink]  20 Aug 2004, 00:26
A grocer bought 24Kg of coffee beans at price X. After a while one third of the stock got spoiled so he sold the rest for 200$per Kilo and made a total profit of twice the cost. What must be price X? (a) 66 2/3$.
(b) 50 1/3$. (c) 48 1/6$.
(d) 33 1/3$. (e) 24 1/2$.

Why D is the answer ?

(a) 66 2/3$. (b) 50 1/3$.
(c) 48 1/6$. (d) 33 1/3$.
(e) 24 1/2$. Why D is the answer ? I think the Q is wrong It shud be thrice the cost for answer to be D Director Joined: 05 May 2004 Posts: 577 Location: San Jose, CA Followers: 2 Kudos [?]: 35 [0], given: 0 [#permalink] 20 Aug 2004, 01:14 hardworker_indian wrote: I got$44.44

3200 - 24x = 48x
x = 44.44

this question is misleading from the start. 24kg at x price. It looks as though 24kg of something for a total cost of x. Until i looked at the solution, then I realized it was actually 24kg at x dollar per kg.
