Question

# If the cost of 14 kg pulses is Rs. 441, then find the price of 22 kg pulses.

Hint: In the above given question, we are asked to find the price of pulses of some quantity by using the price for some specific quantity of pulses. The price so obtained can be verified by varying the quantity of pulses.

The cost of 1 kg pulses$= Rs.\dfrac{{441}}{{14}}$.
Therefore, the cost of 22 kg pulses$= Rs.\dfrac{{441 \times 22}}{{14}}$
$= Rs.\dfrac{{9702}}{{14}}$
$= Rs.693$
Hence, the cost of 22 kg pulses is $Rs.693$.
