**Question:**

** Avinash bought an electric iron for Rs 900 and sold it at a gain of 10%. He sold another electric iron at 5% loss which was bought Rs 1200. On the transaction **

**he has a:**

**(a) Profit of Rs 75 **

**(b) Loss of Rs 75 **

**(c) Profit of Rs 30 **

**(d) Loss of Rs 30**

**Solution:**

(c) Profit of Rs 30

Explanation: Price of electric iron = Rs. 900

Sold at 10% profit

Now, selling price of the electric iron = (10/1000) x 900 + 900 = 90+ 900 = Rs.990

Another electric iron sold at 5% loss.

Cost price of another electric iron = Rs.1200

Thus, selling price of the electric iron = 1200 – 1200 x (5/100) = 1200 – 60 = Rs.1140

Total cost paid by Avinash for purchasing electric irons = Rs.900 + Rs.1200 = Rs.2100

Total received amount = Rs.990 + Rs.1140 = Rs. 2130

Therefore, his profit = Rs.2130- Rs.2100 = Rs.30
