 5 fans ------- Rs 4050

Total cost = 4050 + 500 = 4550

Gain = 15%

SP = 115 / 100 * 4550

SP = 5232.5

 given : CP = Rs 4050

            money spend on transporatation = Rs 500

            gain = 15%

 

ATQ,

         total CP = Rs (4050 + 500)

                        = Rs 4550

now,

   If CP = Rs 100 then SP = 115

Therefore, if CP = Rs 4550 then SP = ?

so, SP = 4550 x 115

                       100

             = Rs 5232.5

so, SP of fans is Rs 5232.5
