Physics Chemistry Mathematics
A = $\left[\begin{array}{ccc}5600& 6750& 8500\\ 6650& 7055& 8905\end{array}\right]\left[\begin{array}{c}\text{Suresh}\\ \text{Ganesh}\end{array}\right]$

If both book shops get 10% profit in the month of August 2017, find the profit for each book seller in each subject in that month.

#### SOLUTION

Both book shops got 10% profit in the month of August 2017.
For Suresh :
Profit for Physics books = $\frac{6650×10}{100}$ = ₹ 665

Profit for Chemistry books = $\frac{7055×10}{100}$ = ₹ 705.50

Profit for Mathematics books = $\frac{8905×10}{100}$ = ₹ 890.50
For Ganesh :
Profit for Physics books = $\frac{7000×10}{100}$ = ₹ 700

Profit for Chemistry books = $\frac{7500×10}{100}$ = ₹ 750

Profit for Mathematics books = $\frac{10200×10}{100}$ = ₹ 1020
