#### Options

15%

10%

25%

The total cost price of two bicycle = 3500 × 2 = 7000

Seling price to get a 20% profit on both

The selling price of the first bicycle on a profit of 5%

`=3500xx((100+5)/100)=3675`

The required selling price of the second bicycle

= 8400 − 3675 = 4725

Profi = 4725 − 3500 = 1225

Profit % `=1225/2500xx100` = 35%
