A flower seller purchases roses at rs 96 a dozen and sells them at 10 rupees for flower. What is the profit per cent of the flower seller?

Answer: The profit percentage is 25%

Let us find the price of one flower

The cost of twelve flowers = 96 Rs

The cost of one flower = 96/12

∴ The cost of one flower = 8 Rs

Let us calculate the profit

The selling cost of each flower = 10 Rs

∴ Profit on each flower selling = 10 Rs – 8 Rs

∴ Profit on each flower selling = 2 Rs

Let us determine the profit percentage

Profit Percentage = 2/8 x 100

Profit Percentage = 25%
