Since cost price of each flower = Rs. 0.83

And, Selling price of each flower = Rs 1.50

Finding total cost of 240 flowers= 0.83*240= Rs.199.2

And selling price of 240 = 1.5*240= Rs 360

He made a profit of Rs 160.8

Hence, he made 80.72% profit

Then cost of 1 piece rose = Rs. 10/12

And cost of 240 roses will be Rs. (240*10/12) = Rs. 200

Hence the cost price(C.P) of roses = 200

He sold 1 rose at the rate of 1.50

Then the selling price of 240 roses = Rs. (240 * 1.50) = 360

Hence the Selling price(S.P) of roses is Rs. 360

Here we can see that S.P>C.P

Therefore Their is profit of S.P - C.P = 360 - 200 = Rs 160

And the profit percentage will be = (Profit/C.P *100) %

=>160/200 * 100 = 80%
