Profit required = 90 Total sale price = 117.5 + 90 = 207.5 since 17 are rotten, only 83 can be sold Sale price per unit = 207.5/83 = 2.5 Option D Posted from my mobile device

Given that: total cost price = $117.5 total in a pack = 100 units since 17% in a pack gets bad the good ones sold = 100  17 = 83 to get a profit of $90 thus, total revenue = 117.5 + 90 = 207.5 selling price per unit = 207.5/83 = $2.5 Hence answer choice D.

Quote: A pack of fruits has 100 units and its total cost is $117.5. If 17% of fruits in a pack are rotten, at least what is the unit selling price to earn a total profit of $90? We are given that: fruits pack has 100 units N = 100 Total Cost C = $117.5 17% of fruits got rotten, thus are not good for eating. Profit (P) = $90 What is the selling price for 1 unit to earn this profit (p=?)? First, let us find out how many fruits are good for eating and are not rotten since we cannot sell rotten goods: 100 * (100%  17%) = 83 We also know, that the profit is $90. Thus, the total Revenue is P (Profit) + C (Cost) = 117.5 + 90 = 207.5Our goal is to find out the selling price (p), thus the selling price for 1 unit will be the p = Total Revenue / Number of Good Fruits = 207.5 / 83 = $2.5Thus, the selling price for 1 unit is $2.5 Answer: D

A pack of fruits has 100 units and its total cost is $117.5. If 17% of fruits in a pack are rotten, at least what is the unit selling price to earn a total profit of $90?
Fairly simple question. All you have to do is simplify. Out of the 100 units, 17% are rotten which means that the seller can sell only 83 units. Now the seller wants to earn a profit of $ 90. Which means his revenue should be 117.5+90 = 207.5 Price per unit = 207.5 / 83 = 2.5 Answer .
A. $2.2 B. $2.3 C. $2.4 D. $2.5 E. $2.6
Hence the answer is D.

Total Cost Price (CP) of 100 units = 117.5 $
17% of 100 units are rotten. Hence, 10017 = 83 units can be sold.
We need to find Selling Price (SP) of 83 units such that the profit earned is 90$.
Let, this SP be 's'.
Total Profits = Total SP  Total CP ie, 90 = 83s117.5
Solving we get s = 2.5 $

17% of 100 less is 83
So he brought all fruits for 117.5
He must now sell them each at 2.5 because
83*2.5=207.5
So 207.5117.5=90
90 is the profit needed

from the given, we have \(83\) fruits left, and the incurred cost for all the \(100\) units is $\(117.5\), so the 83 units can be the only source of revenues to achieve at least $\(90\) profit Revenues  costs ≥ profit \(83c  117.5 ≥ 90\) \(83c ≥ 207.5\) \(c ≥ 2.5\), so the least value for the selling price is at least $\(2.5\) per unit fruit.

There are 100 units of fruit out of which 17% of the fruits are rotten. That gives us 10017 = 83 fruits which can be sold. The cost price of the 100 fruits bought was $117.5 The selling price the seller wants to sell it at is $117.5 + $90 (As profit) = $207.5. To find the unit selling price we need :
=\(\frac{Selling price}{number of units}\)
= \(\frac{207.5}{83}\) = $2.5
Hence, option D is the answer.

The grocer has bought 1 pack of 100 units of fruit for $117.5, but 17% or 17 units out of the 100 are rotten and thus can not be sold, therefore, he has in fact paid 117.5 for 10017=83 units of fruit. Now the question asks us to compute the selling price such that the grocer makes profit of $90. In other words the grocer will have to sell the 83 units of fruit for 117.5 + 90= $207.5 or each unit for \(\frac{207.5}{83}=$2.5/unit\)
Answer is thus D.
Note: a quick way to deal with the awkward division of 207.5 by 83 is to realize that 83*2= 166 and 83*3= 249, it will then be apparent that 249207.5=41.5 which is obviously half of 83 and the answer is thus 2.5.

out of 100 17 are rotten ==> 83 remaining.
Cost price is 117.5 profit needed = 90
so selling price for all the available(83) units is 117.5+90 = 207.5
price per unit = 207.5/83 = 2.5
Hence, D is the answer.

A pack of fruits has 100 units and its total cost is $117.5. If 17% of fruits in a pack are rotten, at least what is the unit selling price to earn a total profit of $90?
Profit =(Selling price)  (cost price ) Profit =90 Cost price =117.5 .: Selling price=90+117.5=207.5
Total units =100 , Units rotten =17/100•100=17 ,Not rotten=83
Now the least unit to earn a profit of 90 = (Total selling price) /(not rotten )=207.5/83 = $2.5

17% of 100 fruits are rotten, then 83 units are in good shape. Total Cost $117.5 & $90 profit has to be made selling those 83 items; now selling price = cost + profit SP=$117.5+ $90 = $207.5 So, to maintain this profit & sell those 83 fruits total at this cost, minimum per unit price has to be 207.5/83=2.5 Hence option D is correct

Given that 100 units of fruits cost $117.5
17% i.e. 17 fruits are rotten. Hence, the number of fruits that can be sold are = 83 To make a total profit of $90 while selling, we need to sell 83 units of fruit at $117.5 + $90 = $ 207.5
Therefore, selling price of each is: \(\frac{$207.5}{83}\) = $ 2.5

If a pack has 100 units and 17% are rotten, then 17 fruits are rotten and we can sell 10017=83 fruits We need to earn a profit of 90$. Thus our total price for all 83 fruits should be 117.5+90=207.5 To calculate the price for each unit just divide total price on the quantity of units 207.5/83=2.5

\(100\) units cost \($117.5\). \(17\)% or \(17\) units are rotten. We have \(83\) units out of which we want to make a profit of \($90\). The total revenue we need \(= 117.5+90=207.5\) The price for each of 83 units \(= \frac{207.5}{83}=2.5\) Hence D

Total Units = 100 Total Cost = 117,5 RottenUnits = 17% TotalProfit = 90
1. Let's determine the number of units that we will sell: SellUnit=100*0,83=83
2. Let's calculate the price per unit : 83*p117,5=90 p=207,5/83 p=2,5

A. $2.2 B. $2.3 C. $2.4 D. $2.5 E. $2.6

Let's begin from the end 1) We want to gain $90 total profit We have 117.5 cost We want 117.5+90= 207.5 total revenue 2) We have to assume that we cant cheat and sell rotten fruit 17% is rotten out of 100 We are left with 10017= 83 sellable fruit 3) To earn 207.5 total revenue with 83 fruit we have to sell each 207.5/83= 2.5IMO Ans: D
