# What will be on Both Transaction, Gain or Loss? If

Two bicycles were sold for Rs.3990 each gaining 5% on one and losing 5% on other. The gain or loss percent on the whole transaction is

- Neither gain transaction is
- 2.5% loss
- 2.5 % gain
- 0.25 % loss

**Answer: (d) 0.25%
Explanation:-
**SP of two bicycle = Rs.3990 and gain = 5%

Therefore, C.P. of two bicycle = 3990 x 100/(100 + 5) = 3800

5% loss,

then, S.P. of two bicycle = 3990 x 100/(100 – 5) = Rs.4200

So, Total C.P. = 3800 + 4200 = Rs.8000

and total S.P. = 2 x 3990 = Rs.7980

Thus, Loss = 8000 – 7980 = 20

Loss% = 20 x 100/8000

= 0.25%

Hence, the loss percent on the whole transaction is 0.25%.
