Hint: Here we go through by first calculating the total cost price by adding the repairing charges to the cost of the scooter then find the value of gain by selling price – cost price. And then find the gain percentage.

Gain% $= \dfrac{{300}}{{5500}} \times 100 = \dfrac{{60}}{{11}}\% = 5\dfrac{5}{{11}}\%$
