Let quantity of solution sold be 1 litre

When the solution is sold for 297, the profit percent = 10%

Hence CP of of solution = SP × 100/(100+P%)

⇒CP = 297 × 100/(100+10)

⇒CP = 270

Ratio of quantities of brand A and brand B is 3:7

Let their costs be 2c and 3c.

⇒ 0.3×2c + 0.7×3c = 270

⇒ 2.7c = 270

⇒ c = 100

Hence cost of Brand B = 3c = 300
