Q:

# 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:

 A) 15 B) 16 C) 18 D) 25

Explanation:

Let C.P. of each article be Re. 1 C.P. of x articles = Rs. x

S.P. of x articles = Rs. 20.

Profit = Rs. (20 - x).

$20-xx*100=25$

=> 2000 - 100x = 25x

=> 125x=2000

=> x=16
