## Q: Hasan buys two kinds of cloth materials for school uniforms, shirt material that costs him RS 50 per metre and trouser material that costs him RS 90 per metre.For every 3 meters of the shirt material he buys 2 metres of the trouser material. He sells the materials at 12% and 10% profit respectively. His total sale is RS 36,600.How much trouser material did he buy?

Solution:

Suppose that Hasan bought x meters of trouser material.

So, the shirt material Hasan bought = 3/2x = 1.5x

Cost of trouser material = 90x and

Cost of shirt material = 50 × 1.5x = 75x

Profit% = (profit/cost price) × 100

For Shirt:
Selling Price(Shirt) = 84x
Selling Price(Trouser) = 99x

→ 84x + 99x = 36600
→   x = 200

So, Hasan bought 200m of trouser material.
