# The Cost Price of 20 Articles is the Same as the Selling Price of 16 Articles. Find the Gain Percent. - Mathematics

Sum

The cost price of 20 articles is the same as the selling price of 16 articles. Find the gain percent.

#### Solution

C.P. of 20 articles = S.P. of 16 articles.

Let C.P. of 1 article = Rs. 1

C.P. of 20 articles = Rs.20

and C.P. of 16 articles = Rs.16

S.P. of 16 articles = Rs.20 ........[S.P. of 16 articles = C.P. of 20 articles]

Gain = Rs.20 – Rs.16 = Rs.4

Gain% =4/16xx100

=(4xx100)/16

= 25%
