we have to divide given quantity of coffee in 2:1 ratiowhich results in 2/3 and 1/31st case---cost for 1 gm coffee=(2/3 gm of 33p per gm)+(1/3 gm of 24p per gm) =(2*33/3)+(24/3) =22+8=30pcost of 100 gm =3000p=Rs.302nd case---cost for 1 gm coffee=(2/3 gm of 24p per gm)+(1/3 gm of 33p per gm) =(2*24/3)+(33/3) =16+11=27pcost of 100 gm =2700p=Rs.27so, shop saved 30-27=Rs.3

2 part of 33p and 1 part of 24p,
33 + 33+ 24= 90 cost of 300 grm
24+24+33= 81 cost of 300 grm
90-81= 9p gain on 300 grm
3p = gain on 100 grm
