# A shopkeeper sold two fans for Rs. 1140 each. On one he gains 14%, while on the other he loses 5%. Calculate his gain or loss per cent in the whole transaction.

SP of first fan = Rs.1140

C.P of first fan

= Rs.1000

SP of second fan = Rs.1140

C.P of second fan,

= Rs. 1200

SP of both fans = 1140 + 1140

= Rs.2280

CP of both fans = 1000 + 1200

= Rs.2200

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

Gain = SP – CP

=2280 - 2200

= Rs80

= (80 × 100) / 2200

= 3.64%
