# A machine is bought for Ã¢â€šÂ¹3800 and Ã¢â€šÂ¹700 is paid for loading and it is sold for Ã¢â€šÂ¹3800. Find the percentage of gain or loss.Â

**Given :**

The cost price of a machine $= 3800$.

Transportation charges $= 700$.

The selling price of a machine $= 3800$.

**To do :**

We have to find the gain or loss percentage.

**Solution :**

â€Š

Cost price $+$ Transportation charges $= 3800 + 700 = 4500$.

Seling price $=3800$.

So, there occurred a loss.

Loss % $= \frac{700}{4500} \times 100$

$=\frac{700}{45}=15.55$

**Therefore, the percentage of loss is 15.55%**
