Question

# The cost price of 20 articles is the same as the selling price of x articles. If the profit is 25%, then the value of x is: 25 18 15 16 30

Solution

## The correct option is D 16 Let C.P of each article be Re. 1. C.P of x articles = Rs. x and S.P of x articles = Rs. 20. Profit = Rs. (20 - x). ∴ 20−xx×100=25⟹2000 - 100x = 25x ⟹ 125x = 2000 ⟹ x = 16.
