- 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

- Mangoes
- 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.
