#### Answer:

Each apple would have to be sold at $R s .10 .33$ for the vendor to make his desired profit.

#### Explanation:

We first calculate his total expense on the apples, the sum of the cost of the apples and what he spent on transport.

$4800 + 400 = 5200$

If he wants a profit of $R s .1 , 000$ on the apples, he would need to sell all the $600$ apples for:

$5200 + 1000 = 6200$

Since there are $600$ apples to be sold, each apple would need to be sold at:

$\frac{6200}{600} = \frac{62 \cancel{00}}{6 \cancel{00}} = \frac{62}{6} = 10.33$

Each apple would have to be sold at $R s .10 .33$ for the vendor to make his desired profit.
