Answer / **Dinu**

More descriptive way :-

The computer centre spends 3/4 of 1440 (ie,1080/-)for heavy duty tapes.

That means they are spending 360/- (ie,1440-1080) for regular tapes.

With 1080 Rs they can buy 36 units (ie,1080/30)

With 360 Rs they can buy 15 units (ie,360/24)

Again with the new prices :

To buy 36 units : 36*28= 1008

To buy 15 units : 15*23= 345

Total=1353

How much will they save a month under the new prices?

Ans= 1440-1353 = 87

**Rs.132**

Expentditure on normal tape 1440 @ 24 per tape.

No. of tapes = 60 Savings Rs. 60

Expenditure on Heavy duty tapes = 3/4 of 1440= 1080

Total no of tapes @ 30 per tape=36

Savings Rs. 36*2=72

Total savings, 60+72=**132. Answer**

### **jasu85**

Aug 10th, 2008

Total Expenditure on tapes=Rs.1440

Total Expenditure on heavy duty tapes=3/4*1440=Rs.1080

Total reels of heavy duty tape=1080/30=36

Total savings on heavy duty tape=36*(30-28)=Rs.72

Total Expenditure on regular tapes=1/4*1440=Rs.360

Total reels of regular tape=360/24=15

Total savings on regular tape=15*(24-23)=Rs.15

Total Savings=Rs.72+Rs.15=Rs.87

### **Harikrishnan**

Sep 7th, 2013 for old price

Hd tape = (3/4)*1440 = 1080

Hd tape + Reg tape = 1440

(3/4)*1440 + Reg tape = 1440

SO, Reg tape = 360 HD tape = 1080

no. of reg tape = 360/24 = 15

no. of HD tape = 1080/30 = 36

For new price, Hd tape savings = (30-28) = 2

Reg tape savings = 24-23 = 1

Total savings = (36*2)+(15*1) = 87

Note : here the twist in question is Rs.1440 is the expense of both reg and HD tapes. and not reg tapes alone..so be careful..

### **Pratiksha Katkhede**

Jan 5th, 2017

Total money spend on tapes=1440 Rs

Money spend on heavy tapes= 3/4*(1440)=1080 Rs

So, 1440= 1080 +x (Money spends on simple tapes)

x= 360 Rs. now,

in 1080 Rs,no of heavy duty tapes get = 1080/30= 36

now saving on 1 heavy duty tape=30-28=2

saving on 36 duty tape= 36*2=72

now, Regular tapes = 360/24=15

saving on 1 tape= 24-23=1 Rs

saving on 15 tapes=15*1 =15 Rs

Total saving= saving on heavy duty tape +saving on simple tapes

= 72 + 15 = 87 Rs
