Question

A man sold two bed sheets at $$Rs 1000$$ each. On one gains $$25\%$$ and on the other he loses $$20\%$$. How much does he gain or loss in the whole transaction?


Solution

S.P of each bed sheet $$4=$$ $$Rs \,1000$$
Now     Gain$$=$$$$25\% $$ of c.
implies S.P $$-$$ C.P $$=$$$$\cfrac{{25}}{{100}} \times $$ C.P
implies $$1000$$$$-$$C.P$$=$$$$\cfrac{1}{4} \times $$C.P
implies $$\cfrac{5}{4} \times $$C.P $$=$$$$1000$$
implies C.P$$=$$Rs $$800$$
Also   Loss $$=$$$$20\% $$ of C.P
implies C.P$$-$$ S.P $$=$$ $$\cfrac{{20}}{{100}} \times $$ C.P
implies C.P $$-$$ $$1000$$ $$=$$ $$\cfrac{1}{5} \times $$ C.P
implies C.P$$=$$ Rs $$1250$$
So, Total C.P $$=$$  $$800+1250$$$$=$$ Rs $$2050$$
Total S.P $$=$$ $$1000+1000$$$$=$$ Rs $$2000$$
Overall Profit $$=$$ S.P $$-$$ C.P
                       $$=$$$$2050-2000$$
                       $$=$$ Rs $$50$$
