A shopkeeper sold two bats which have a cost price of ₹6,000 each. He makes a profit of 10% on one bat but a loss of 5% on the other bat. Find the overall profit or loss in the entire transaction.

A.

Loss of 300

B.

Profit of 300

C.

Profit of 600

D.

Loss of 600

Profit on one of the bats = 10% of ₹6,000
= 10100×6,000= ₹600

Hence, the Selling price
= Cost price + Profit
= ₹(6,000 + 600) = ₹6,600

Loss on the other bat
= 5% of ₹6,000
= 5100×6,000
= ₹300 

Selling price = Cost price - Loss
= ₹(6,000 - 300)
= ₹5,700

Total cost price (CP) = ₹12,000
Total selling price (SP) =6,600+5,700=12,300

Hence, as SP > CP, he has made a profit of (12,30012,000)=300.
