    A person sells 36 oranges per rupee and suffers a loss of 4%. Find how many oranges per rupee need to be sold to have a gain of 8%.

    Principle of recovery- The best method to tackle these kind of problems.

    To gain more, one must have the ‘tendency’ to sell less.

    With 36 oranges, I could recover only 96% of the cost.

    How many I must sell to recover 108% of the cost?

    Principle of recovery reduces this question to one arithmetic calculation- 36*(96/108) =32

    Why 96/108? – This value shows the ‘tendency’ to sell less to maximise profit. Since, I have to shoot up my gains, I’d multiply the original sale with a smaller ratio to get the required number.
