Q:

A Shopkeeper sells two articles at Rs.1000 each, making a profit of 20% on the first article and a loss of 20% on the second article. Find the net Profit or loss that he makes? 

A) 4% B) 5%
C) 6% D) 8%
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 4%

Explanation:

SP of first article = Rs.1000

Profit = 20%

 

SP of Second Article = Rs.1000

Loss = 20%

 

So, Total SP = Rs.2000; Total CP = Rs.6250/3

As the CP is more than SP, he makes a loss.

Loss = CP - SP = (6250/3) - 2000 = Rs.(250/3)

 

So, Loss Percent = = 4%
