## Global Stats

A seller sells his rice at cost price but uses a faulty weighing machine. The weighing machine reads $$a\%$$ less than the actual weight of the rice that is being sold. Find the profit/loss percentage on selling $$10\, kg$$ of the rice.

1) If the seller gives a discount of $$10\%,$$ then he will incur a loss of $$55\%.$$

2) The cost price per kg is $$5$$ dollars.
