Solution

Total expenses while buying the machine = Cost of machine + Octroi + Transport + Porterage
= 80000 + 1600 + 800 + 300
= Rs. 82700
That is, the total cost price is Rs. 82700.

Profit = Selling price - Total cost price
= 100000 - 82700
= Rs. 17300

∴ Sambhajirao made a profit of Rs. 17300 in this transaction.
