# Wasim bought two cricket bats for Rs. 840 and Rs.360 respectively. He sells the first bat at a gain of 15% and the second one at a loss of 5%. Find his gain or loss per cent in the whole transaction.

CP of first bat = Rs.840

SP of first bat

= (115 × 840) /100

= Rs.966

CP of second bat = Rs.360

SP of second bat

= Rs.342

CP of both the bat = 840 + 360

= Rs.1200

SP of both bats = 966 + 342

= Rs.1308

It is a case of Gain because SP is more than CP.

Gain = SP – CP

= 1308 - 1200

= Rs108

= 9%
