# A fruit seller buys 240 apples for Rs. 600. Some of these apples are rotten and are thrown away. He sells the remaining apples at Rs. 3.50 each and makes a profit of Rs. 198. The % of apples thrown away are ?

• 16%
• 25%
• 34%
• 47%
Explanation:-

Solution:
Let the number of bad apples = x
Cost price of (240 - x) apples = Rs. 3.50 × (240 - x)
According to the question,
⇒ 3.50 × (240 - x) - 600 = 198
⇒ x = 12
So, % of apples thrown away are
Alternate :
Selling price of apples
= 600 + 198 = 798
Number of apples sold

Alternate :
Selling price of apples
= 600 + 198 = 798
