Anirudh bought a pen for 10 rupees and sold it to Sonu for 5 rupees.
Since 5 is less than 10, Anirudh made a loss.
He sold the pen for half of what he bought it for.
The percentage of loss is 100%.
Anirudh lost all the money he spent on buying the pen.

Cost Price (CP) of Pen = Rs. 10 <div>Selling Price (SP) of Pen = Rs. 5</div><div>
</div><div>Since SP<CP, he incurs a loss.</div><div>Loss = CP – SP</div><div> = 10- 5</div><div> = 5 (in rupees)</div><div>
</div><div>Loss Percentage = Loss / CP Ã— 100</div><div> = 5/10 Ã— 100</div><div> = 50%</div>
