# What is the Loss Percentage to Sell Vegetable

Salim had to sell vegetables worth ₹ 5, 750 for ₹ 4, 500 due to heavy rainfall. What is the loss percentage that he has incurred ?

- 21 . 74%
- 23 . 47 %
- 20%
- 23 . 45%

**Answer: (1) 21.74%**

**Explanation:-**

Cost price of the vegetables = Rs.5750

Selling price of the vegetables = Rs.4500

Loss = 5750 – 4500 = Rs.1250

**Formula-**

**Loss% = loss x 100/Cost price**

Then, Loss% = 1250 x 100/5750

= 21.74%

Hence, the answer is (1) 21.74%
