A shopkeeper sells two products A and B. He earns 17.5% profit on a product A costing Rs. 1500. If the overall profit on selling two products is 20%, then what will be the profit percentage on the other product B costing Rs. 1000?

Cost Price of A = Rs. 1500

Cost Price of B = Rs. 1000

Profit on A = 0.175 × 1500 = Rs. 262.5

Overall profit = 0.20 × 2500 = Rs. 500

Profit on B = 500 – 262.5 = Rs. 237.5

Profit percentage = 237.5/1000 × 100 = 23.75 %
