# A VCR and TV were bought for Rs 8,000 each. The shopkeeper made a loss of 4% on the VCR and a profit of 8% on the TV. Find the gain or loss percent on the whole transaction.

Answer :

**Case 1: For V.C.R**

Cost Price = Rs. 8000

On V.C.R, Shopkeeper made a 4% loss

So, Selling Price of V.C.R = 8000 - 4% of 8000**Case 2: T.V**

Cost Price of T.V = Rs. 8000

On. T.V, shopkeeper made a profit of 8%

So, Selling Price of T.V = 8000 + 8% of 8000

Therefore,

Total C.P = 8000 + 8000 = Rs. 16000

Total S.P = 7680 + 8640 = Rs. 16320

As S.P > C.P

Profit is made by the shopkeeper.

Therefore, Profit = S.P - C.P

Profit = 16320 - 16000**Profit = Rs. 320**
