The cost price of 20 articles is the same as the selling price of x articles. If the profit is 25%, find out the value of x.

Let the Cost Price of each article = Rs. x

CP of x articles = Rs. x

SP of x articles = Rs. 20

Profit = Rs. (20 - x)

Therefore,

=> [(20-x)/x]× 100 = 25

=> 2000 - 100x = 25x

=> 125x = 2000

=> x = 16
