let’s say he pays Rs100 for 100 gms

and sells 70gms instead of 100gms (in Rs. 100)

They meet after 6 days (lcm of 2 and 3) or after 6n days

and Wednesday will come after 3 days or 7k+3 days

so 7k+3 = 6n (where k and n are integers)

k = 3 , then, n =4

hence they will meet after 7(3)+3 = 24 days for first time on a wednesday

and then after 42 days (lcm of 6 and 7), they will again meet (for 2nd time) on a Wednesday. It means after 66 days Viraj will  have 2 crystals.
