A merchant had Rs.78,592 with her. She placed an order for purchasing 42 radio sets at Rs.1200 each. How much money will remain with her after the purchase?

Answer Verified Verified
Hint- Remaining money will be the money left after buying 42 radio sets at Rs.1200 each. Calculate the cost of 42 radios and subtract from merchant money.

Given: Total money merchant had \[ = {\text{Rs }}78,592\]
and cost of 1 radio set \[ = {\text{Rs }}1200\]
$\therefore $Cost of 42 radio sets $ = 42 \times 1200 = {\text{Rs 504}}00$
$\therefore $The total money spent by merchant is ${\text{Rs 50400}}$.
Money left = Total money – Total money spent
Money left $ = {\text{Rs 78592}} - {\text{Rs 50400}}$
Money left $ = {\text{Rs 28192}}$
Therefore,${\text{Rs 28192}}$ will remain with her after purchasing $42$ radio sets.

Note- In these types of questions, always try to calculate the total money spent first by multiplying the cost of one product with the number of products purchased.
