Expert Answer:

Let the total number of glass plates purchased by trader be a

Cost price of a plates = Rs. 2700

Thus, cost price of one plate = Rs (2700/a)

As five plates were damaged, the number of plates damaged by trader = (a – 5)

SP of (a-5) plates = 2700 + 240 = Rs. 2940

Thus, SP of each plate = Rs [2940/(a-5)]
