Consider a linear relation between the demand and estimated selling price, find how many liters would he will sell every week at a cost of Rs.18/liters?*

*Solution.*

y – 1000 =

y – 1000 = 120 (x – 15)

i.e., y = 120 (x – 15) + 1000

If, x = Rs. 18/liters

y = 120(18 – 15) + 1000

y = 120 (3) + 1000

y = 1360
