# In a particular month, a shopkeeper incurs a loss of Rs. 15, by losing 30 paise per pencil. Calculate the number of pencil sold in this month.

**Given:** A shopkeeper incurs a loss of Rs. 15, by losing 30 paise per pencil.

**To find:** the number of pencils sold this month.

**
**

**
**

**Solution:**

**
**

Total loss = Rs. 15 = 1500 paise

Loss on 1 pencil = 30 paise

Now,

Number of pencils sold = $\frac{Total\ loss}{Loss\ on\ 1\ pencil}$

Number of pencils sold = $\frac{1500}{30}$

Number of pencils sold = **50 pencils**

So, number of pencils is equal to 50.
