The cost pice of 20 articles is the same as the selling price of x articles. If the profit is 25- the value of x is: Let C.P. of each article be Rs. 1 C.P. of x articles S.P. of x articles = Rs.20. Profit-Rs. (20-x). Rs. X. 20-100-25 2000 100x = 25x X 125x 2000 X=16 .can anyone please tell why cannot we take cp as 20 and sp as X..even though sp and cp are equal.. calculate the problem????.pls anyone..

    You can try this trick: Profit%= (purchased qty - selleing qty)/selling qty × 100 25=(20-x)/x *100 1/4=(20-x)/x x=80–4x 5x=80 x=16
