Rs 500 in total.

Total money out: 100 (as credit) + 500 (fallout) => Rs 600
Total Money in: Rs 100 (as returned)

Net: 600 - 100 => Rs 500

Loss: Rs 500

A shopkeeper decides to give a discount of 20% + 30% on the printed price of a watch, but unfortunately the printed banner comes with the print as 30%+40% discount. If he gets a gain of only 5% of actual cost of watch in this new structure then how much profit in a actual cost did he decide to get in the earlier structure.
