Given:

Kirti bookstore sold books worth $â‚¹ 2,85,891$ in the first week of June and books worth $â‚¹ 4,00,768$ in the second week of the month.

To do:

We have to find the sale for the two weeks together and in which week the sale was greater and by how much.

Solution:

The price of books sold by Kirti in June first week $= Rs.\ 285891$

The price of books sold by Kirti in June second week $= Rs.\ 400768$

Therefore,

The sale for the two weeks together $= Rs.\ 285891 + Rs.\ 400768$

$= Rs.\ 686659$

The sale of books is greater in the second week.

Difference in the sale in both weeks $= Rs.\ 400768 - Rs.\ 285891$

$= Rs.\ 114877$

Hence, the sale in second week was greater by $Rs.\ 114877$ than in the first week.
