Q3. A certain product C is made of two ingredients A and B in the proportion of 2: 5. The price of A is three times that of B. The overall cost of C is Rs. 5.20 per kg including labour charges of 80 paisa per kg. Find the cost of B per kg ?

Rs. 8.40
Rs. 4.20
Rs. 4.80
Rs. 2.80
Rs. 3.20
Solution:

Let the price of B per kg be Rs. X. Then, the price of A per kg = Rs. 3X
1kg of C contains 2/7 kg of A and 5/7 kg of B
Price of 1 kg of C = (2/7) × 3X + (5/7) X = (11/7) X
By the given condition, 11X/7
= 5.20 – 0.80
= Rs. 4.40
⇒ X = 4.40 × (7/11) = Rs. 2.80
Hence the price of B per kg = Rs. 2.80.
