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.
