Jon bought a car for 20000 and sold it for 30% profit. Then he bought another more expensive car and sold it for 30% loss. Wat was his overall profit or loss?

I got 1st 26000 profit
Then 18200 loss
Overall? I minus them or??

  • Math -

    Overall loss, neglecting benefit from use of the car, is
    loss = $20,000 - $18,200 = $1800
    It is a loss because he ended up with less money than the start.
