# How Many Should be Sell for 50% Gain? If

A man bought toffees at 6 for a rupee. How many toffees for rupee must he sell to gain 50%?

- 5
- 2
- 4
- 6

**Answer: (3) 4.**

**Explanation:-**

A man bought 6 toffees = Rs.1

Therefore, Cost of 1 toffees = Rs.1/6

Gain = 50 %

Then, the selling price of 6 toffees = 150 % of Rs.1

= 150/100

= 3/2

For Rs.3/2 , toffees sold = 6

For Rs.1 , toffees sold = 6 x 2/3

= 2 x 2

= 4

Hence, the answer is (3) 4.
