Two types of medicines A and B are manufactured by seven different companies X1, X2, X3, X4, X5, X6 and X7. The production of each company (inclusive of both medicines A and B) is expressed as a percentage of total production and represented in the pie-chart given below. This pie-chart is
followed by a table which shows the ratio in which each company produces the two medicines and also the percent profit that each company earns in selling medicines A and B. Study the given information and answer the questions that follow.

Ratio of production between medicines A and B and the percent profit earned for the two medicines.

### SOLUTION

1) Cost of production (A + B) by X2 = (15% of 75) crores

Cost of production of medicine A by X2 = (2/5 of (15% of 75) crores
= 4.5 crores

Similarly, cost of production of medicine A by X6 = (3/8 of (8% of 75) crores
= 2.25 crores

Required Ratio = 4.5 / 2.25 = 2:1

2) Cost of production of medicine A by company X2 = [2/5 of (15% of 75)] crores
= 4.5 crores

Cost of production of medicine B by company X1 = [2/5 of (11% of 75)] crores
= 3.3 crores
=> Total cost = (4.5 + 3.3) crores = 7.8 crores

3) Cost of production of medicine B by company X3 = [2/3 of (12% of 75)] crores
= 6 crores

Cost of production of medicine B by company X4 = [4/5 of (5% of 75)] crores
= 3 crores

=> Total cost = (6 + 3) crores = 9 crores

4) It is clear from the pie chart that the cost of production of both the medicines together by company X5  = (27% of 75) crores

Similarly, we have (from the pie chart) that the production of both the medicines together by combinations of companies is as follows:

(i) (X1 + X3) = [(11% + 12%) of 75] crores = (23% of 75) crores

(ii) (X6 + X7) = [ (8% + 22%) of 75] crores = (30% of 75) crores

(iii) (X4 + X7) = [(15% + 22%)of 75] crores = (27% of 75) crores
which is same as that for company X5.

(iv) (X2 + X6) = [(15% + 8%) of 75] crores = (23% of 75) crores

5) Cost of production of medicine B by company X6 = [ 5/8 of (8% of 75)] crores
= 15/4 crores
Now, Profit earned = 25% of cost of production
= (25% of 15/4) crores
= 93.75 lakhs

6) Profit earned by Company X3 for medicine A
= {30% of [1/3 of (12% of 75)]} crores = 0.90 crores

Profit earned by Company X3 for medicine B
= {24% of [2/3 of (12% of 75)]} crores = 1.44 crores

Total profit earned by Company X3 = (0.90 + 1.44) crores
= 2.34 crores

7) Profit earned by Company X5 for medicine A
= [28% of {5/8 of (27% of 75}] crores = 3.54 crores

Profit earned by Company X7 for medicine B
= [ 22% of { 1/5 of (22% of 75)}] crores = 0.73 crores

Total profit = (3.54 + 0.73) crores = 4.27 crores
