### Rohan bought a second hand refrigerator for Rs 2,500, then spent Rs 500 on its repairs and sold it for Rs 3,300. Find his loss or gain per cent.

Solution:

Cost of refrigerator = Rs 2500

Money spent on repairs = Rs 500

Total CP of refrigerator = Rs 2500 + 500 = Rs 3000

SP of refrigerator = Rs 3300

Since SP > CP, so profit ocurrs.

Now, profit = SP − CP = 3300 − 3000 = Rs 300 QUESTION: 3

### A picnic is being planned in a school for Class VII. Girls are 60% of the total number of students and are 18 in number. Find the ratio of the number of girls to the number of boys in the class.

Girls are 60% of the total number of students and are 18 in number.

Let say total students = T

Girls = (60/100)T

Ratio of Girls to boys = 18 : 12

=> 3 : 2
