A car owner buys petrol at Rs 7.50, Rs. 8 and Rs. 8.50 per litre for three successive years. What approximately is the average cost per litre of petrol if he spends Rs. 4000 each year ?

A) Rs. 7.98

B) Rs. 8

C) Rs. 8.50

D) Rs. 9


Option A


Total quality of petrol consumed in 3 years = $(\frac{4000}{7.5}+\frac{4000}{8}+\frac{4000}{8.5})$
Total amount spend =3x4000=12000.
Average cost = $\frac{12000\times51}{76700}=\frac{6120}{767}=7.98$
