Hi again neha1,

Neither am I, but I would imagine that you are expected to derive expressions for each individual case rather than remembering specific formulae.

What did he pay for all of the rice? How much rice did he buy? From that, how much did he pay "per kilogram" for the rice?

He wants to make a 16% gain. What price is 16% more than what he paid?
