# Ashima sold two coolers for Rs 3,990 each. On selling one cooler she gained 5% and on selling the the other she suffered a loss of 5%. Find her overall gain or loss % in whole transaction.

Answer :

Given that, selling price of coolers = Rs.3990 each.On first cooler, gain = 5% and on second cooler, loss = 5%

For first cooler -

∵ Gain = Selling price - cost price

⇒ cost price of first cooler = Rs.3800

For second cooler -

∵ Loss = cost price - Selling price

⇒ cost price of second cooler = Rs.4200

∴ total cost price = Rs.3800 + Rs.4200

= Rs.8000

And total selling price = Rs.3990 × 2

= Rs.7980

⇒ cost price>selling price ⇒ loss

And loss = total cost price - total selling price

= Rs.8000 - Rs.7980

= Rs.20

= 0.25%
