**Given:**

Discount on product = 10%

Percentage less weight = 15%

**Calculation:**

Let MP of 1000 gm be Rs. 1000

SP after discount = Rs. 1000 × 90%

⇒ Rs. 900

Now, less weight = 1000 × 85% gm

⇒ 850 gm

So, CP of 850 gm = Rs. 850

Now, Gain = Rs. (900 – 850)

⇒ Rs. 50

Gain% = (50/850) × 100

⇒ 5.88%

**∴ Gain/Loss Percentage is 5.88%**
