A farmer farms 800 apples in his farm every week and delivers them equally to 10 shops. The shopkeepers charge Rs.10 for every good apple but they to give Rs 6 to the customer if the apple comes out to be rotten. A shopkeeper could only earn Rs 250 despite selling all the apples. How many apples were rotten?

Expert Answer:

No. of apples produced by the farmer = 800

No. of apples delivered to each shop = 800/10 = 80

Money earned by a particular shopkeeper = Rs. 250

Money earned if all apples were good = 80 × 10 = Rs. 800

Money lost due to rotten apples = 800 - 250 = Rs. 550

Cost that shopkeeper will give for one rotten apple = Rs. 6

Number of rotten apples = 550/6 = 91 (approximately)

Hence, 91 eggs were rotten.
