\$100.

he didn't lose anything as it was stolen, he was \$100 down.
if he didn't know the bloke had stolen it, how did he know he'd come back in.

\$130 and whatever the cost price of the goods were.

The \$70 sale is just a regular transaction and irrelevant. The loss is \$100.

At the end of day he has lost \$30 cash plus \$70 worth of stock that the thief paid for with the shopkeepers own money.

Think of the shop as a "box". What did you walk away with from the "box"......... \$30 + \$70 in goods.

122.16€ (\$130) and whatever the cost price of the goods were.

Agreed.

He has lost the original 100.

Then the price he paid for the goods that retailed at 70. Usually the mark up is 2 and a half times.

Then the 30 he gave him out of the till.

£100 out of the till
+
£30 out of the till in change = £130

Thief gave him £70 back .... £130-£70 = £60 out from the till
Plus the goods worth £70

=£130

or tree fiddy

Well I'd be crap at working in a shop!:D

He's lost \$30 cash and \$70 of stock.

The theif gave him the original \$100 back in exchange for the goods and \$ 30 change

this

though thats not an answer to what did he 'loose'
Edited by: "brilly" 4th Dec 2016

The shop keeper loosened his bowels probably as well as losing money.

12:05 \$200 in the till
12:08 Thief steals \$100
12:09 cashier notices only \$100 in the till
12:15 thief returns and buys \$70 worth of goods,pays with \$100 bill. \$30 change given.

12:18 cashier notices \$170 in the till.

I think I want to change my answer haha

\$30 down
\$70 stock down

2 ways of looking at it
1) lost \$100, when he came back it was as a normal customer so no lose just normal sales
2) after the second visit he had lost \$70 stock & \$30 cash ie end of the day he was down \$30 cash from till & \$70 stock

Only \$100

SInce the mark up on shop bought goods is usually 100-200%, he lost between \$45 and \$65, and a lot of credibility.

Always wondered where all the HUKD folk got the "word" ? ... "loose" from - Now I know

£100 out of the till+£30 out of the till in change = £130Thief gave him £7 … £100 out of the till+£30 out of the till in change = £130Thief gave him £70 back .... £130-£70 = £60 out from the tillPlus the goods worth £70=£130or tree fiddy

Er no

Thief takes \$100, brings it back till now back \$100= 0 loss

Thief selects \$70 item, cashier gives him \$30 out the till

Total loss is \$100 \$70 in stock \$30 cash

so... you just called yourself a thicko yeah?

No

zombrex

No

well you said 100, he didn't lose 100
he lost 70 worth and 30 as you said in the next post which is not the same
but seems you do understand now... not bad for a thicko

Lost \$100,

\$70 worth of stock removed which would have went to a paying customer for \$70 cash...therefore has lost \$100 due to giving the 'buyer' cashback of £30

You really are thick as mince brilly

That only works on the basis shops would give you change back before you hand over cash amount, you've forgot to mention the Thief handed over \$100 not \$70

now now ... just cos it finally twigged and you changed your answer no need to question my intelligence

maybe you should just have said 'YER HE LOOSE STUFF' then taken a bit of time to clarify?

btw talking mince... what if the said mince was going out of date the next day and wouldn't have sold? the actual loss due to the guy would then be less
so \$100 is wrong as its based on false/incomplete info - we dont know how much the items cost the seller, his travel to replenish or if they have sold etc etc

the only correct answer is the 30cash and the 70 'worth'

Which is what I said from the start you nugget

No matter how much you want it to be any different the loss is \$100 suck it up!

could you clarify when you made your first post aka 'at the start'?
to me it seems to be #22 where you say

which as stated - is different

nugget? mince? this thread making you hungry fella?

how am i being different? i agreed in post #14 with the answer of \$30 and \$70 stock so erm... 'stuck it up'?

anyway as said - the answer is zero and he didn't loose any
if we take it as lose then he actually only lost \$30, any future loss is to be determined and is \$70 if settling immediately at current prices but subject to change due to price variations and stock levels etc

anyway, thanks to MSB, fun thread as always

Yes. \$100!

I would say the shopkeeper has lost \$70 of items & also \$30 in cash & that has to be correct due to my awesomeness

\$100. All other answers are pointless and without basis. The \$70 of items and \$30 change are representative of the original \$100.

was any of the items part of a multipack not to be sold separately ? as this would change my answer X)

\$30 cash and \$70 worth of goods (whatever they cost him). The \$100 taken out was out back in the till so cancels out
