When the price of sugar was increased by 32% a family [#permalink]  29 Dec 2004, 18:14
When the price of sugar was increased by 32% a family reduced its consumption in such a way that the expenditure on sugar was only 10% more than before. If 30 Lb was consumed per month before , what is the new monthly consumption.

consumption after - consumption before = 10% of consumption before

or, Con. after = con. before (1. 10)

or, 1.32 (PQ)= 1.1 P (30)

Q= 25lb
