Hint: Here we go through by finding the total profit that is gained by selling the white cement bag at the profit of Rs.8 per bag and then subtract the total loss by selling the grey cement bag at the loss of Rs.5 per bag to find it is in loss or in profit.

i.e. the total profit on white cement bag$= Rs.8 \times 3000 = Rs.24000$
i.e. the total loss on white cement bag$= Rs.5 \times 5000 = Rs.25000$
$\therefore$Loss=Rs.1000.
