Given, that the Cost price of 20 articles is the same as the selling price of x articles.

Profit = 25%

We have to find the value of x.

Let the cost price of each article, CP = Re. 1

Cost price of x articles = Rs. x

The selling price of x articles = Rs. 20

We know, profit = Selling price – Cost price

So, Profit = 20 – x

Also, Profit% = Profit/CP x 100

25 = (20 – x)/x × 100

25/100 = 20-x / x

1/4 = 20-x / x

x = 4(20-x)

x = 80 – 4x

x + 4x = 80

5x = 80

x = 16

Therefore, the value of x is 16.

Summary:

## The cost price of 20 articles is the same as the selling price of x articles. The value of x is (given profit =20%).

The cost price of 20 articles is the same as the selling price of x articles. The value of x is 16.
