C.P. of a VCR = ₹ 8000
The shopkeeper made a loss of 4 % on VCR
This means if C.P. is ₹ 100, then S.P. is ₹ 96. When C.P. is ₹ 8000
S.P. = (96/100 x 8000) = ₹ 7680
C.P. of a TV = ₹ 8000
The shopkeeper made a profit of 8 % on TV.
This means that if C.P. is ₹ 100, then S.P. is ₹ 108.
When C.P. is ₹ 8000,
S.P. = (108/100 x 8000) = ₹ 8640
Total S.P. = ₹ 7680 + ₹ 8640 = ₹ 16320
Total C.P. = ₹ 8000 + ₹ 8000 = ₹ 16000
Since, total S.P.> total C.P. ⇒ profit
Profit = ₹ 16320 − ₹ 16000 = ₹ 320
Therefore, the shopkeeper had a gain of 2% on the whole transaction.
