CAT 2017 [slot 2] Question with solution 09

Question 43:
Mayank buys some candies for Rs 15 a dozen and an equal number of different candies for Rs 12 a dozen. He sells all for Rs 16.50 a dozen and makes a profit of Rs 150. How many dozens of candies did he buy altogether?
  1. 50
  2. 30
  3. 25
  4. 45
Option: 1
Explanation:

Let the number of dozens of candies he bought of each variety be x
Hence total cost = 12x + 15x = 27x
Total selling price = 16.50×2x = 33x
Profit = 33x - 27x = 6x
Given 6x = 150 => x = 25
Hence he bought 50 dozens of candies in total
