Answer:Step-by-step explanation: Cp of oranges = 200 profit on it, 30% of ₹200 = 30/100 × 200=60 Total selling price = 200 + 60 = 260 Cp of 100 oranges = ₹200 Cp of 1 orange = ₹200÷100 = 2 Cp of 20 oranges = 2 × 20 = ₹40 Gain on 20 oranges = 5 % of 40 Gain = 40 × 5/100 = ₹2 Total SP of 20 oranges = ₹40 + ₹2 = ₹42 SP of all the oranges with profit of 30% – SP of 20 oranges = SP of remaining oranges with profit I.e ₹260 – ₹42 = ₹218 So he should sell it for ₹218 to get overall gain of 30%hope this will help you
