sp= (900×5)/2 + (700×15)/5

sp= 2250+2100=4350

so it's profit = sp- cp = 4350-3200=1150

so profit percent = (profit /cp)×100

P%= (1150/3200)×100

=1150/32=575/16=35.9375=35.94%

cp of 12 bananas = Rs,24

so cp of 1600 bananas = Rs,3200

now sp of 1600 bananas = [900*5/2]+[77*15/5]

=Rs.4350

gain = 4350-3200 = Rs.1150

gain percent = [gain/cp]*100

= [1150/3200]*100

= **34.6%**
