Solution

The loss percent on selling 140 geometry boxes at the loss of S.P. of 10 geometry boxes is equal to `6 2/3` %.

Explanation:

Let the selling price of 1 geometry box be Rs. 1.

So, the selling price for 140 geometry boxes = Rs.1 × 140 = Rs.140

Similarly, selling price of 10 geometry boxes = Rs. 1 × 10 = Rs. 10 v

Loss = Selling price of 10 geometry boxes = Rs.10

∴ Loss percentage = `"Loss"/"CP" xx 100`

= `10/(140 + 10) xx 100`

= `10/150 xx 100`

= `20/3`%

= `6 2/3`%
