I bought wheat worth Rs. 12 $\frac{1}{2}$, rice worth Rs. 25 $\frac{3}{4}$ and vegetables worth Rs. 10 $\frac{1}{4}$. If I gave a hundred-rupee note to the shopkeeper; how much did he return to me?


Given: A person bought wheat worth Rs. 12 $\frac{1}{2}$, rice worth Rs. 25 $\frac{3}{4}$ and vegetables worth Rs. 10 $\frac{1}{4}$

 

To find: We have to find how much will the shopkeeper return.

Solution:

Money given to shopkeeper is Rs 100

Cost of Wheat Rs 12 $\frac{1}{2}$ or  Rs 12.50

Cost of Rice Rs25 $\frac{3}{4}$ or Rs 25.75

Cost of Vegetables Rs 10 $\frac{1}{4}$or Rs 10.25

Total purchases = Rs 48.50


The money that the shopkeeper would return to me = Rs 100 - Rs48.50


= Rs 51.50
