# Find the Difference Between The Original and Reduced Price Per kg is : If

The price of sugar having gone down by 10%, a consumer can by 5 kg more sugar for Rs.270. The difference between the original and reduced price per kg is

- 62 paise
- 60 paise
- 75 paise
- 53 paise

**Answer: (b) 60 paisa
Explanation:-
**Let be the original price of sugar = Rs.X

Then, the reduce price of sugar = X – 10 X/100

= (100 X – 10 X )/100

= 90X/100

= 9 X/10

According to the question,

270/(9 X/10) – 270/X = 5

270 x 10/9 X – 270/X = 5

300/9 X – 270/X = 5

(300 – 270)/X = 5

30/X = 5

X = 30/5 = 6

Therefore, the original price of sugar = Rs.6

Reduced price of sugar = 9 x X/10 = 9 x 6/10

= Rs.5.40

Thus, the required difference = 6 – 5.40

= Rs.0.60 or 60 paisa.

Hence, the answer is (b) 60 paisa.
