Solution

## Given, selling price (S.P.) of 110 mangoes = Cost price (C.P.) of 120 mangoes Let the C.P. of 1 mango beRs x ∴ C.P. of 120 mangoes = Rs 120 x S.P. of 110 mangoes = Rs 120 x ∴ S.P. of 1 mango =Rs 120x110=Rs1211x Since, S.P of 1 mango > C.P. of 1 mango, ∴ Gain on selling 1 mango = S.P. of 1 mango - C.P. of 1 mango ⇒ Gain on selling 1 mango =Rs1112x−Rs x=Rs(12x−11x11)=Rsx11 We know that, Gain%=GainC.P.×100∴Gain%=Gain on selling 1mangoC.P.of 1mango×100%⇒Gain%=Rsx11Rs x×100%⇒Gain%=10011%≈9.09%(Approx) Thus, the gain percent is 9.09% approximately.
