# A man bought 360 eggs at Ã¢â€šÂ¹ 12 per dozen. 60 eggs were broken and 30 eggs were rotten. Find his profit or loss percent, if he sells the rest of the eggs at Ã¢â€šÂ¹ 15 per dozen.

Dear Shivani,

30 dozens 30x12 =360 eggs.

So the Total Cost Price was 30x12= Rs 360.

Substracting the broken and rotten ones from the Total number of eggs bought,

360-(60+30)=Rs270

i.e, 22.5 dozens.

The Total Selling Price= 22.5x15

= Rs. 337.5

Rs337.5

Therefore, it is a loss.

Therefore, Loss Percent= {(360-337.5)÷360}x 100 %

= 6.25%
