# What will be the quantity sold at 8% profit? If

A merchant has 1000 kg sugar, part of which he sells at 8% profit and the rest at 18% profit. He gains 14% on the whole. The quantity sold at 8% profit is:

- 640 kg
- 400 Kg
- 560 Kg
- 600 Kg

**Answer: (2) 400 Kg**

**Explanation:-**According to question,

Therefore, the ratio of quantities of 8% profit and 18% profit = 4: 6

= 2: 3

Then, the quantity sold at 8% profit = 1000 x 2/5

= 200 x 2

= 400 kg

Then, the quantity sold at 8% profit is 400 kg.

Hence, the answer is (2) 400 kg.
