### Selling Price:

**Question:**

A bookseller procures 40 books for Rs. 3200 and sells them at a profit equal to the selling price of 8 books. What is the selling price of one dozen books, if the price of each book is same?

**Option A):**

Rs. 720**Option B):**

Rs. 1440**Option C):**

Rs. 960**Option D):**

Rs. 1200

**Correct Answer is Option D):**

Rs. 1200

**Explanation:**

Cost price of each book,

= 3200 /40 = Rs. 80.

Now,

Selling Price of 40 books = CP of 40 books + SP of 8 books.

Selling Price of 40 books - SP of 8 books = CP of 40 books.

SP of 32 books = Rs. 3200

SP of 1 book = 3200 /32 = Rs. 100.

So, Selling price of one dozen (12) book = 12*100 = Rs. 1200.
