**Step-by-step explanation:**

Let the cost price of the washing machine is X

market price of the washing machine = 40% above the cost price of the washing machine

= x + [ x × 40/100 ]

= x + 40x/100

= 140x/100

= 7x/5 rs.

Now , selling price of the washing machine = 35 % less the selling price of the washing machine.

= 7x/5 - [ 7x/5 × 35/100 ]

= 7x/5 - 49x/100

= (140x - 49x)/100

= 91x/100 rs

so, cost price = x

selling price = 91x/100

Here selling price is less than cost price so, the shopkeeper got loss

loss percentage = [CP - SP]/CP × 100

= [x - 91x/100]/x × 100]

= [9x/100] /x × 100

= 9/100 × 100

= 9% answer
