A green grocer had a profit of 47 on Monday, a loss of 12 on Tuesday and loss of 8 on Wednesday. Find his net profit or loss in 3 days.

Answer :

Given that:

Profit on Monday = Rs. 47

Loss on Tuesday = Rs. 12

Loss on Wednesday = Rs. 8

To find net profit or net loss, we need to find total profit and total loss.

So, total profit = Rs 47

Total loss = Rs 12 + Rs 8 = Rs 20 [The grocer incurred loss on two days in a row, Tuesday and Wednesday]

He has incurred profit in the end as total profit is more than total loss.

Net profit = Total profit – Total Loss

Net profit = 47 – 20

Net profit = 27

Thus, net profit is Rs. 27.
