**Rotten Vegetables and Fresh Fruit **

**Grocer Grapefruit was trying to make signs for the fruit and vegetables on his stall but he couldn’t spell very well. Some of the letters in Grocer Grapefruit’s vegetables have been eaten by caterpillars and slugs. Can you help Grocer Grapefruit to name the fruit and vegetables on his stall ?**

**Answers :
1/ (6 x 25) + (1.25 + 1.25 / 2) + (2 x 100) = 150 + 200 + 200 = £5.50
2/ (2 x 1.50) + (10 x 5) = £3 + £0.50 = £3.50
3/ 2 pence per kilo. 20 pence in total (5 x £0.48 = £2.40)
4/ 25 pence
5/ 10 / 100 x 10 = 1 extra free, 11 in total
6/ 350 + (2 x 120) + (2.4 x 60) + (6 x 50) = 350 + 240 + 144 + 300 = £10.34
7/ a) carrots – £1.20 – 15 pence = £1.05 per kilo ; potatoes £3.50 – 15 = £3.35 ; tomatoes – £1.50 – 15 pence = £1.35 ; oranges – 6 x 25 pence – 15 pence= £1.35
b) £1.05 + £3.35 + £1.50 + £1.35 + £1.35 = £8.60
8/ Sold = 6 x 10 = 60 / 3 x 2 = 40 Remaining 60 – 40 = 20 potatoes
9/ 115 / 5) = 23
10/ 500 – (167 + 136) = 197 plums
11/ He should have had 75 x 11 = 825 potatoes but he lost 75. Therefore, 825 – 75 = 750
12/ Original cost = 60 x £1.10 = £66.00
Revenue from customer sale = 57 x £1.25 = £71.25
Profit margin = £71.25 – £66.00 – £3.30 = £1.95
13/ £5.70 – £ 4.66 = £1.04
14/ Tomatoes 304 / 100 x 2 = 6.08 ; Punnets of strawberries 20 / 100 x 2 = 0.4 ; Potatoes 50 / 100 x 2 = 1 kilo ; Oranges 120 / 100 x 2 = 2.4
