There was once a farmer, he bought a cattle for Rs 600. Then he sold it for Rs 700. He felt of buying it again so he purchased it again for Rs 800 and sold it Again for Rs 900. Find the amount he got as profit.

Dont just give the number.. give explanation in support to your ans too

700-600=100

900-800=100

i think profit will be 200

i know my answer will be definitely wrong...

first he bought it for 600, and sold it for 700, that makes a profit of 100....

he bought is back for 800, matlab loss of 100,

so no loss no gain so far, finally he sold it for 900, matlab gain of 300 from beginning to the end, am i right???

He got the Total Profit of Rs.200

when he sells for 700 ..... he gets 100 profit

So no profit no loss........!!!!!!

When he sells it for 900.......... he gets 900!!!

which are 200 more when he bought the cattle..!!!

Am I right?

Profit is Rs. 200,

Farmer's total investment is 700 from his pocket and he got 900 from his final sale, so the profit is 200.

coz he baught it for 600 and sold at 700 so 100 profit
then he baught it again for 800 so the profit gone, balance = 0
sold again for 900 then the profit is = 100

bought for 600

sold for 700
600+100=700 gain 100

again bought for 800
700+100=800 loss 100

and again sold for 900
800+100=900 gain 100

So gain 100 and loss 100 and then gain 100

first he purchased for -600
Then sold for 700(100 profit)
Then again
purchased -800(100 loss)
Then again sold 900(100 profit)

so total profit is 100

But if we dont consider Rs. 100 loss for the second purchase the answer will be 200.

Hello guyzz..

Its a very simple question.. if u think with a cool mind you will get the answer.

I REPEAT, ANSWER IS NOT THAT IMPORTANT MANY OF YOU HAVE REPEATED THE CORRECT FIGURE. EXCEPT ONE, ALL EXPLANATIONS ARE WRONG. I NEED CORRECT EXPLANATION.
Hints:

1)Its not a tricky question (do not strain ur brain)... it is simple and straight.
2)Imagine yourself in a market doing business with certain amount, say 'x' .. now do your computation.

I'll wait untill tommorow if none are able to explain it correctly then I'll give the answer with explanation.

I hope with the hepl of the hints above my friends will be able to explain the solution.

Cheers.

Suppose I have a saving of Rs 'x'

I start business with that amount and after few transactions my savings are Rs 'x + n'

Do you all agree that Rs 'n' is my profit ?? I do.

Now, let me apply the same in this question

I bought the cattle for Rs 600

My savings read : Rs x-600

I sell it for Rs 700

My savings x-600+700 = x+100

I again bought the cattle for 800

My savings x+100-800 = x-700

I sell it for 900

My savings x-700+900 = x+200

therefore profit is............. yes 200
