### Check Answer

The correct answer is

We will use this formula to find price;

price = units × rate

The cost price of 26Kg rice = (26 × 20)

The cost price of 26Kg rice = RS. 520

The Cost price of 30Kg rice = (30 × 36)

The cost price of 30Kg rice = RS. 1080

The total cost price of 56Kg rice = RS. 520 + RS. 1080

The total cost price of 56Kg rice = RS. 1600

The selling price of 56Kg rice = (56 × 30)

The selling price of 56Kg rice = RS. 1680

\text { Gain } \%\ =\ \left(\frac{Selling\ price\ -\ Cost\ price}{Cost\ price}\ \times\ 100\right)\%

\text { Gain } \%\ =\ \left(\frac{1680\ -\ 1600}{1600}\ \times\ 100\right)\%

\text { Gain } \%\ =\ \left(\frac{80}{1600}\ \times\ 100\right)\%

Gain % = 5%

price = units × rate

**Step: 1**

The cost price of 26Kg rice = (26 × 20)

The cost price of 26Kg rice = RS. 520

The Cost price of 30Kg rice = (30 × 36)

The cost price of 30Kg rice = RS. 1080

The total cost price of 56Kg rice = RS. 520 + RS. 1080

The total cost price of 56Kg rice = RS. 1600

**Step: 2**

The selling price of 56Kg rice = (56 × 30)

The selling price of 56Kg rice = RS. 1680

**Step: 3**

\text { Gain } \%\ =\ \left(\frac{Selling\ price\ -\ Cost\ price}{Cost\ price}\ \times\ 100\right)\%

\text { Gain } \%\ =\ \left(\frac{1680\ -\ 1600}{1600}\ \times\ 100\right)\%

\text { Gain } \%\ =\ \left(\frac{80}{1600}\ \times\ 100\right)\%

Gain % = 5%
