Let S be the Selling price of 1 article,

Therefore, the selling price of 100 articles=100 S

Profit earned by selling these 100 articles=selling price of 75 articles = 75 S

We know that, Selling Price (SP)=Cost Price (CP)+Profit

So, we get

100S = CP+75S. Hence, CP

=100S-75S=25S

Profit percentage = Profit/(Cost Price)×100%

=75S/25S×100%=300%

Average cost of 5 apples and 4 mangoes=Rs.36

Total cost=36×9=324

Average cost of 7 apples and 8 mangoes=48

Total cost=48×15=720

Total cost of 12 apples and 12 mangoes

=324+720=1044

Therefore, cost of 24 apples and 24 mangoes =1044×2=2088
