Amar bought eggs at the rate of 5 for Rs 7 and sold them at the rate of 7 for Rs 10. C.p of 1 egg = 7/5. S.P = 10/7. How S.P = 10/7? What is the meaning of "sold them at the rate of 7 for Rs 10"?

He sells 7 eggs for the price of Rs 10 (that's the total price for 7 eggs). so the S.P. per egg is Rs 10/7

I notice that for every 35 eggs Amar sold, the total profit was Rs 1.
