### Computer MCQs Series for PPSC, FPSC – Most Repeated MCQs | Set 6

• The price of 357 mangoes is Rs 1517.25.
• The approximate price of 49 dozens of such mangoes can be figure out in this way.

## Explanation

Two given entities here are

1. Mangoes
2. Price

To determine the relation here, let suppose; approximate price of 49 dozens of mangoes = y

Case

As we know that;

1 dozen = 12

49 dozen = 12 x 49 = 588

Mangoes              Price

357             1517.25

588                      y

• More mangoes means more price.
• Small quantity of mangoes would require small price.

This clearly indicates that there is direct relation.

Direct/Indirect relation tells how the equation will be written.

357 : 588  ::  1517.25 : y ________ (A)

After simplifying equation (A), we can easily figure out the value of y (y = 2500)

## To Find

Approximate price of 49 dozens of mangoes = y

## Solution

Method I

Let suppose

Approximate price of 49 dozens of mangoes = y

Mangoes             Price

357             1517.25

588                      y

Relation between mangoes and price is direct, so;

357 : 588  ::  1517.25 : y

357 x y = 588 x 1517.25

y = 892143/357

y = 2499

Approximate price of 49 dozens of mangoes = Rs. 2500 answer

Method II

Price of 357 mangoes = 1517.25

Price of 1 mango = 1517.25/357

Price of 1 mango = 4.25

Price of 49 dozens of mangoes = 49 x 12 x 4.25

Price of 49 dozen of mangoes = 2499

Approximate price of 49 dozens of mangoes = Rs. 2500 answer

## Conclusion

The price of 357 mangoes is Rs. 1517.25. Then, the approximate price of 49 dozens of such mangoes will be Rs. 2500.
