Borewell for fresh water | Rs. 3000 | 1 | |

Bamboo for fish drying | Rs. 2000 | 20 | |

Borewell for fresh water | Rs. 3000 | 1 | Rs. (30001) =Rs. 3000 |

Bamboo for fish drying | Rs. 2000 | 20 | Rs. (200020) = Rs. 40000 |

Cement tank | Rs. 1000 | 4 | Rs. (10004) =Rs. 4000 |

Tray and knife | Rs. 300 | 20 | Rs. (30020) = Rs. 6000 |

Bucket | Rs. 75 | 20 | Rs. (7520) =Rs. 1500 |

Total cost to set up the factory = Rs. 54500

Quantity of dried fish obtained in one month= of 6000 kg = (6000/3) kg= 2000kg

**Ques. Let us first calculate for 6 kg of fresh fish.**

**We buy fresh fish for Rs. 15 per kg**

**We sell dried fish for Rs. 70 per kg**

**We dry 6 kg fresh fish to get ………. Kg dried fish**

**For 6 kg fresh fish we have to pay 6………. = Rs. 90**

**We will sell 2 kg dried fish and get 2………. = Rs.………**

**So if we dry 6 kg fresh fish we will earn ………-90= Rs. ……….**

**But it we dry 6000 kg we can earn Rs…………1000 in one month!**

**Sol. ** We dry 6 kg fresh fish to get 2kg dried fish [6/3=2]

For 6 kg fresh fish we have to pay 6Rs. 15 =Rs. 90

We will sell 2kg dried fish and get 2 Rs. 70 =Rs. 140

So if we dry 6 kg fresh fish we will earn Rs. 140-Rs. 90= Rs. 50

But if we dry 6000 kg we can earn Rs 501000=Rs. 5000 in one month!

**Ques. Jhansi- I found that for 6000 kg fish we would need 1500 kg salt every month! Its price is Rs. 2 per kg**

**Monthly costs:**

**(a) Salt 1500****2= Rs.………..**

**(b) Packing and bus charges= Rs. 3000**

**So the total monthly cost of drying and selling the fish =Rs. ………..**

**Fazila- That sounds very good! Our calculations tell us that every month our Bank will earn Rs. 44000!**

**1. Check to see if you also get the same answer.**

**Sol. ** Monthly costs-

**(a) **Salt =1500Rs. 2= Rs. 30000

**(b)** Packing and bus charges= Rs. 3000

So, the total monthly cost of drying and selling the fish=Rs. 3000+Rs. 3000= Rs. 6000

They earn Rs. (50000-6000) = Rs. 44000 per month

Their answer is correct.
