Let the S.P is 500 both item

For 10%loss= C.P is 555.55

For 10%profit=C.P is 454.5

Therefore

total s.p of 2 items=1000

total c.p of 2 items=1010.05

Therefore overall loss can b calculated by above formula

For 10%loss= C.P is 555.55

For 10%profit=C.P is 454.5

Therefore

total s.p of 2 items=1000

total c.p of 2 items=1010.05

Therefore overall loss can b calculated by above formula

If two articles sold at the same price, one is at 12% profit and other is at 12% loss, then the seller always incurs a loss expressed as:

Loss% = (12/10)^2 = (144/100) =1.44%

Loss% = (12/10)^2 = (144/100) =1.44%

They said a trader sold two goods at same price ,say 100 rupees. After he sold both goods, one good got some loss which is equal to the profit of the other good,say 10%.

As the loss and profit percent are equal the trader will always get loss.Therefore,

Loss%=[(Common profit or loss percentage)/10]

As the loss and profit percent are equal the trader will always get loss.Therefore,

Loss%=[(Common profit or loss percentage)/10]

By selling 15 dozen Bananas, a fruit seller lost an amount equal to the selling price of 20 bananas, find the loss percentage

let the S.P of each banana be 1, then S.P of 180 bananas is 180

loss = S.P of 20 bananas = 20

we know loss = C.P - S.P , then C.P = S.P + loss

so CP of 180 bananas = 180 + 20 = 200

Loss percent = $\dfrac{\text{Loss}}{\text{CP}}×100=\dfrac{20}{200}×100$

after cutting it we will find the answer is 10% loss

loss = S.P of 20 bananas = 20

we know loss = C.P - S.P , then C.P = S.P + loss

so CP of 180 bananas = 180 + 20 = 200

Loss percent = $\dfrac{\text{Loss}}{\text{CP}}×100=\dfrac{20}{200}×100$

after cutting it we will find the answer is 10% loss

here sp will be 160,because he sold items with 20 loss.

sp=160

cp=sp+loss

=160+20

=180

loss% = (loss/cp)*100

=(20/180)*100

=11.11

so loss% = 11.11%.

sp=160

cp=sp+loss

=160+20

=180

loss% = (loss/cp)*100

=(20/180)*100

=11.11

so loss% = 11.11%.

@Hemanth, answer is 10%

He has taken SP of each banana as Rs.1

therefore, S.P of 180 bananas = 180

Then, cost price of 180 bananas = 180+20=200

Therefore, loss is 20*100/200 =10%

He has taken SP of each banana as Rs.1

therefore, S.P of 180 bananas = 180

Then, cost price of 180 bananas = 180+20=200

Therefore, loss is 20*100/200 =10%
