A shopkeeper sells two products A and B. He earns 15% profit on a product A costing Rs. 1500. If the overall profit on selling two products is 21%, then what will be the profit percentage on the other product B costing Rs. 1000?

Cost Price of A = Rs. 1500

Cost Price of B = Rs. 1000

Profit on A = 0.15 × 1500 = Rs. 225

Overall profit = 0.21 × 2500 = Rs. 525

Profit on B = 525 – 225 = Rs. 300

Profit percentage = 300/1000 × 100 = 30%
