### Percentage Profit Or Loss:

**Question:**

An egg seller sells his eggs only in the packs of 3 eggs, 6 eggs, 9 eggs, 12 eggs etc., but the rate is not necessarily uniform. One day Raju (which is not the same egg seller) purchased at the rate of 3 eggs for a rupee and the next hour he purchased equal number of eggs at the rate of 6 eggs for a rupee. Next day he sold all the eggs at the rate of 9 eggs for Rs. 2. What is his percentage profit or loss?

**Option A):**

3% loss**Option B):**

10% loss**Option C):**

11.11% loss**Option D):**

2.5 % profit

**Correct Answer is Option C):**

11.11% loss

**Explanation:**

CP of one egg in first case = 1/3 = 33.33 paise

CP of one egg in second case = 1/6 = 16.66 paise

Average CP = (33.33 +16.66)/2 = 25 paise

Selling price of 9 eggs = Rs. 2

SP of one egg = 200/9

Profit or loss = [(25 - (200/9))*100]/25

Profit or loss = -11.11. (loss)
