# A villager buys a goat and a sheep together for Rs 14,250. He sold

| A villager buys a goat and a sheep together for Rs 14,250. He sold the sheep at a profit of 10% and the goat at a loss of 20%. If he sold both the animals atthe same price, then what was the cost price of the cheaper animal?

A. 8250

B. 6600

C. 7500

D. 6000

### Right Answer is: D

#### SOLUTION

10% = 10/100 = 1/10

Means, if we say 10% profit it means there is a profit of 1 on every 10 Rs.

20% = 20/100 = 1/5

and if we say 20% loss it means there is a loss of 1 on every 5 Rs.

Now, according to the question

On comparing C.P. and S.P. and on making selling price of Goat of Sheep same as per the question-

So, our total CP becomes (40+55) if the selling price of both are same i.e. 44.

∴ C.P of sheep = 40 units = 40×150 = 6000
