= 100/6

= 16.66 % ------- ANSWER

- Loss percentage = {Loss × 100}/{Cost\ price}
- Loss = Cost price - Selling price

- Rahul purchased a car for Rs 3,00,000.
- He sold the car after one year for Rs 250000 .

- Cost price = Rs 300000
- Selling price = Rs 250000

Loss = 300000 - 250000

= 50000

Putting all the values in the formula

Loss\ percentage = {50000 × 100}/{300000}

Loss\ percentage = {5000000}/{300000}

Therefore the loss percentage is 16.67% .
