use formula 15,  
overall loss % = (10/10)2 = 1%
----------------------------------------
if you want to know the full logic, here it is

Total Cost Price  = 900*100/110 + 900*100/90  = 9000/11 + 1000 = 20000/11
Total Selling Price = 900+900 = 1800

Loss = 20000/11 -  1800 = 200/11
Percentage loss = (200/11)*100/ ( 20000/11) =  1%

Let the price in Mumbai be x

15x/100 - 150 = 150
=> 15x/100 = 300
=> x = 2000

Profit percentage = 150*100/2000 = 7.5%

I want to understand the equation you created 

15x/100-150=150.

As the Ans is 8 %

Well, my reasoning is given below
Difference in price = 15x/100 which should have been the profit.
But additional expense of Rs.150 (travel expense) needs to be reduced from this to get the actual profit
 i.e., 15x/100 - 150 = profit, which is given as Rs.150

Can you explain how the answer is 8% then?

THE GENERAL FORMULA IS

       The Overall Summary of all these formulae in which we can calculate the gain, loss, S.P & C.P directly by using the below formula..... S.P= ((100 +- g/l)*C.P)/100 if we use gain then we use + sign and if we use loss then we use - sign
