Answer:Hey mate!!!!

Here is your answer:

First of all, there should be loss percent not gain percent.Step by Step Explanation:Let the SP of 17 balls = Rs. 1Then SP of 1 ball = Rs. (1/17)

CP of 16 balls = SP of 17 balls = Rs. 1

Then CP of 1 ball = Rs. (1/16)

Loss = (CP – SP)= [(1/16) – (1/17)]

= [(17 – 16)/272]

= [(1/272)]

Loss% = [(loss/CP)×100]%= [(1/272)×100]%

= [25/68]%

= 0.367%
