Given,

Cost of 700 gm of fruit = Rs 216

Cost of almonds = Rs 288 per kg

And the cost of cashew = Rs 336 per kg

Now, let the weight of almond = x gm and

The weight of cashew = (700 - x) gm

Then according to the conditions given in the problem, we have

288x + 235200 – 336x = 216000

288x – 336x = 216000 – 235200

x = -19200/-48 = 400

Therefore, the weight of almond = 400 gm and the weight of cashew = (700 – 400) gm = 300 gm
