**What will be the selling rate?**

A seller purchases the green colour of holi from two dealers,

5 kg from a dealer at a rate of 60 rupees per kg and

7 kg from other dealer at a rate of 80 rupees per kg .

If he sells the colour after mixing,

**then what will be the selling rate for getting a profit of 20% ?**

5 kg purchased from a dealer at 60 rupees per kg

Therefore total cost per 5 kg = 60 x 5 = 300

7 kg purchased from 2nd dealer at 80 rupees per kg

Therefore total cost per 7 kg = 80 x 7 = 560

Therefore total cost for 12 kg = 300 + 560 = 860

Hence cost per kg 860/12 = 71.66

Profit = 20%

Therefore Selling price = Cost price + Cost price x 0.2

= Cost price x 1.2

= 71.66 x 1.2 = 86
