I purchases perfume from a store and gave him a thousand rupee note.
The perfume cost Rs.300.

Since the store person have no change, he gets the change from next shop and return me 800 rupees.

After a while, the next shopkeeper comes and told the 1st shopkeeper that the note is a fraud and takes his money back.

How much loss does the 1st shopkeeper have to bear ?

ravi Expert Asked on 22nd July 2015 in

Cost of perfume: Rs. 300.
Money he gives to I: Rs. 700.
Money he gives to next shop finally: Rs. 1000.
So total loss of 1st shopkeeper; Rs. 2000.

Total loss should be 1000 not 2000

Because,
If Money he gives to next shop is LOSS
then
MONET he took from next shop is PROFIT

Hence both will be neutralised

Total loss = Rs 1000

Transacton 1
Cost of perfume: Rs. 300.
Money he gives to I: Rs. 700.
Loss = Rs 1000
______________________________
Transacton 2
Money he Took from next shop finally: Rs. 1000.(PROFIT)
Money he gives to next shop finally: Rs. 1000.(LOSS)
It becomes = 0
______________________________
Total Loss

Loss in Transacton 1 + Loss in Transacton 2 =  Rs1000
