    Answer: 2000 radios were sold at a 12℅.

    3000 radio were sold at a 8%

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let x represent the cost of the radio8% loss that was sold at a loss of 12%.

    Let y represent the cost of the radio that was sold at a gain of 8%.

    A man bought two radio sets for Rs 5000 . He sold one at a loss of 12% and the other at gain of 8%. This means that

    x + y = 5000

    Profit made on the first radio is 0.12x

    Profit made on the second radio is 0.08x.

    He neither gained nor loss in the transaction. This means that

    0.12x = 0.08y – – – – – – – – – — – -1

    Substituting x = 5000 – y into equation 1, it becomes

    0.12(5000 – y) = 0.08y

    600 – 0.12y = 0.08y

    0.08y + 0.12y = 600

    0.2y = 600

    y = 600/0.2

    y = 3000

    x = 5000 – y = 5000 – 3000

    x = 2000
