The price of 357 mangoes is Rs 1517.25. What will be the approximate price of 49 dozens of such mangoes?

  • 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.
