Kantabai bought 1.5 kg of tea and 5 jg of sugar for shop . She paid ₹50 as a return fare for rickshaw . Total expense was ₹700 . Then she realised that by ordering online the goods can be bought with free home delivery at the same price . So next month she placed the order online for 2 kg sugar and 7 kg tea she paid 880 for that . Find the rate of sugar and tea per kg

Expert Answer:

Let the rate of 1 kg of tea be Rs. x and Rs. y of sugar per kg.
According to the question,
1.5x + 5y + 50 = 700
1.5x + 5y = 650 ....(i)
and 
7x + 2y = 880 ....(ii)
Solving (i) and (ii) we get x = 96.875 and y = 100.9375
