Hi how 100% came please if you can help me with the solution to it
let the price paid by each passenger be Rs X
hence , s.p. - 3x and c.p.. rs.30
apply the formula for finding profit percent and you get x= rs. 12
now , for 4 passengers : s.p = rs. 4× 12 = 48
c.p - rs. 24
again apply the same formula n get profit percrnt as 100%
