₹1 = 100 paise

Cost of 2 dozen pencils

= 72 × (12 × 2) paise

= 1728 paise

= ₹17.28

Selling price of 2 dozen pencils

= ₹7.20 × 2

= ₹14.40 < ₹17.28

Since the selling price is lower than the cost price, he lost.

Loss percent

= (Loss/Cost) × 100%

= [(17.28 - 14.40)/17.28] × 100%

= (16 2/3)%

≈ 16.67%

Cost of 1 orange

= 50/3 paise

Selling price of 1 orange

= 60/2 paise

= 30 paise

Gain percentage

= (Gain/Cost) × 100%

= {[30 - (50/3)] / (50/3)} × 100%

= [(40/3) / (50/3)] × 100%

= (40/50) × 100%

= 80%
