  1. try using some easy numbers first.

    if buying 10 lbs, his scale says he is only getting 11 lbs.

    His selling scale says he is selling 9 lbs.

    See what you can do with that.

    Looks to me like he's losing money. Unless somehow the buying/selling is from the customer's perspective, not the shopkeeper's.
