WE CAN SOLVE IT WITH ANOTHER METHOD

COST OF EACH PEAR = 1.90 \$

SELLING PRICE OF EACH PEAR = 2.50 \$

PROFIT = SELLING PRICE - COST PRICE (EACH PEAR)

= 2.50   -      1.90

PROFIT ON EACH PEAR = 0.6 \$

NOW WE CAN EASILY FIND THE PROFIT OF 100 PEARS

PROFIT OF 100 PEARS = 100 X 0.6 = 60\$

Number of pears =100

cost of one pear when he bought = 1.90\$

total cost when he bought 100 pears = 1.90\$*100 = 190\$

selling price of one pear = 2.50\$

selling price of 100 pear = 100*2.50\$ =250\$

His profit = selling price- total cost = 250\$-190\$ = 60\$

So he is having 60\$ profit

TOTAL PEARS =100

COST PRICE OF EACH PEAR = 1.90\$

COST PRICE (CP) OF 100 PEARS = 1.90 x 100 = 190\$

SELLING PRICE OF EACH PEAR = 2.50\$

SELLING PRICE (SP) OF 100 PEARS = 100 x 2.50\$ = 250\$

PROFIT = SP - CP

= 250 - 190

PROFIT = 60\$
