Now, what is the total loss to the shopkeeper ??

@Saket the answer is Rs. 2000.00

Rs. 200 for Goods to the Lady

Rs. 800 for Bal. Amt Given back to the Lady

Rs. 1000 for returning it back to the next door neighbor

nope...my time to ....answer is 1000

Loss= Loss- gain

Loss Gain

200 rs goods Rs 1000 from lady

1000 rs to neighbour 1000 rs change

800 rs to lady

1000 rs returned to neighbor

Totalling loss- gain = 3000-2000= Rs. 1000
