13. A dealer has two sorts of tea, one of which he could sell at Is. 8d. per lb. and make 25 per cent. on his outlay, the other at 2s. 3d. and make 12 per cent. What profit per cent. will he make if he mixes them in equal quantities and sells the mixture at Is. 11d. per lb. ?

14. Goods are imported from abroad at an expense equal to 35 per cent. of the cost of production; and the importer makes 15 per cent. on his whole outlay by selling them to a tradesman at £7. 15s. 3d. per ton. Find the cost per ton of production.
