(a)
8 x 50% = 4

(b)
75 units x 8 + 25 units x 4 = 700 units = 2800
1 unit = 2800/700 = 4
75 units = 75 x 4 = 300

Ans : (a) $4; (b) 300 pens.

This is a Quantity Each Product question. 

 

  Quantity    Each  Product 
First  75u 8 600u
Next  25u 4 100u
Total     700u

a)

8 × 50% = 4

b)

700u = 2800

1u = 2800 ÷ 700 = 4

75u = 75 × 4 =300 pens
