# THE DISHONEST MERCHANT

An unscrupulous trader decided to make some extra profit on Coffee. He bought one type of coffee powder at Rs. 32 a kilo and mixed some of it with a better quality of coffee powder bought at Rs. 40 a kilo, and he sold the blend at 43 a kilo. That gave him a profit of 25 per cent on the cost.
How many kilos of each kind must he use to make a blend of a hundred kilos weight?

The merchant must mix 70 Kilos of the Rs. 32 coffee with 30 Kilos of Rs. 40 coffee.
