Question 11: Sam buys 10 apples for $1. At what price should he sell a dozen apples if he wishes to make a profit of 25%?

@ INR

The cost price of 1 apple = $\\frac{1}{10}) or $0.10.

Because Sam wishes to make a profit of 25%, selling price per apple should be 0.10 + 25% of 0.10

= 0.1 + 0.025 = $0.125.

If the selling price of 1 apple is $0.125, the selling price of a dozen apples = 12 × 0.125 = $1.5

**Selling price of a dozen apples is $1.5**
