Given: 

A merchant had \( ₹ 78,592 \) with her. She placed an order for purchasing 40 radio sets at \( ₹ 1200 \) each.

To do: 

We have to find the money remaining with her after the purchase.

Solution:

Total money the merchant had initially $= Rs.\ 78592$

Number of radio sets purchased $= 40$

Cost of each radio set $= Rs.\ 1200$

This implies,

Cost of 40 radio sets $= Rs.\ 1200 \times 40$

$= Rs.\ 48000$

Money remaining with her after the purchase $= Rs.\ 78592 - 48000$

$= Rs.\ 30592$

Hence, the money left with the merchant after purchasing 40 radio sets is $Rs.\ 30592$.
