Answer is D Total cost of 100 units =117.5 17% of the 100 units are rotten so there is 83 units left to sell. We know profit = no.of units *SPTC Therefore the least selling price to earn $90 profit, =83*2.5117.5 =90 Answer is D Posted from my mobile device

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?
17% of fruits in a pack are rotten. So, sellable fruits : 83/100
To make $90 profit : Total SP = 117.5 + 90 = 207.5
Least unit selling price = 207.5/83 = 2.37
So, Ans should be (C)

To earn $90, store needs to sell all of the remaining fruits for 208 (add 90 to 108) approximately. If 208 gets divided by remaining 83 pieces of fruits, D will be answer

Out of 100, 17 are rotten. Only 83 can be sold. RevenueExpense=Profit R117.5=90 R=90+117.5 R=207.5 needs to be received for 83 units of fruits price per unit: 207.5=83 units x=1 unit 207.5*1/83=x 2.5=x, D matches

Let SP of each unit be y.
Since, 17% units are rotten. So, 83 units must be sold and the final SP should be $207.50 in order to earn $90 profit.
83 y = 207.50 y = 2.5
So, the answer is (D)

total cost of the remaining 83 units=117.5 If there is a profit of 90 then the total selling price=117.5+90=207.5 now the unit selling price=207.5/83=2.5 So correct option is D

Total no. of fruits in a pack = 100 17% of them are rotten. So, no. of good (sellable) fruits = 100(17%x100) = 83
CP of 83 fruits (sellable) = 117.5
Profit for the 83 fruits \(\geq{90}\) SP of the 83 fruits \(\geq{207.5}\) (SP=CP+Profit=117.5+90)
Minimum SP of the 83 fruits so that profit of $90 can be made = 207.5
Hence, minimum SP of each fruit = 207.5/83 = 2.5
Option (D)

Out of 100 units, 17 units cannot be sold. According to the question, Total cost($117,5) and Total profit($90) must be earned by selling the 83 units. Let's say that the unit selling price is X: 83X=117.5+90 83X=207,5 X=2075/(83*10)=25/10=2.5 For making the $90 profit, the unit selling price at least should be 2.5$ The answer choice is D.

IMO D
We have 100 units of a fruit in which 17 are rotten. Therefore, good fruits are \(100  17 = 83\) We are asked to find the price P of each good fruit to get a profit of $90.
\(83 * P = 117.5 + 90\) \(P = \frac{207.5}{83}\) \(P = 2.5\)

17% are rotten > Only 83 fruits can be sold
Let the selling price of each fruit = x > SP of 83 fruits = 83x
Total profit = 90 > 83x  117.5 = 90 > 83x = 207.5 > x = 2.5 $
IMO Option D
Pls Hit Kudos if you like the solution
