A. 2 %

B. 7272 %

C. 4 %

D. 2323%

E. 12 %

Total printers bought = 20

Let price of printer = $1

Total cost of printer = 1 x 20 = $20

Total computers bought = 60

Price of computer = three times the price of printer = 3 x 1 = $3

Total cost of computer = 3 x 60 = $180

Total cost of computers and printers = 180 + 20 = $200

Cost of 1 computer and 1 printer = 1+ 3 = $4

Percent of 1 computer and 1 printer to the total cost of computers and printers = (Cost of 1 computer and 1 printer / Total cost of computers and printers ) x 100

Required amount = \(\frac{4}{200}\) x 100 =
