A Little Question

Post by natasha » May 07, 2007 Views: 7184

One day 3 friends gone to market for buy a shoe, they entered a shoe show room (that time only 1 staff was there)

They ask to staff for a shoe

boys: How much for this?


staff: Rs. 60/=

(they decide to take that shoe and contribute Rs. 20/= each and take the shoe and gone from the shop)

After a while shop keeper came and ask his staff...

S.Keeper: Any Sale?
staff: Yes! Rs. 60/=
for what ask S. Keeper
staff: for that corner shoe.


S.Keeper: Oh! No! that was only for Rs. 50/= take this 10 rupee and return them.

(staff take the money and gone from shop)

(after while staff thinking they are 3 and I have Rs. 10/= they don't know the actual price of shoe, I take Rs. 4/= and I return them only Rs. 6/=)

(after few minutes staff mate the boys and tell them the price of shoe was Rs. 54/= and he came for returned Rs. 6/=, boys were happy and they ditribute Rs. 2/= each)

(Now there shoe cost is Rs. 18/= each)

Now Add

18 + 18 + 18 = Rs. 54.00

add also Rs. 4.00 (who was taking commission)


total rupees is now 58/= (actual rs. was 60/= now tell me where are Rs. 2/=)

why we will add 4 rupees we will add only add 6 rupees that has been given by sales man because 4 are also added in those 54 rupees that coz shope keeper told gave him 10 to return but he return only 6 then its mean we will add only 6 rupees not the 4.

Price taken at first = Rs 60
shopkeepre said return Rs 10
staff took commision = 4 Rs
so,
d actual price = 50 Rs + 4 Rs(staffs commision)
= 54 Rs(18+18+18 )
= now add d money returned by d staff
= 54 + 6
= 60 Rs 8)
