# What is The Profit %?

If the ratio of cost price and sale price is 5: 6, then what is the profit %?

- 25%
- 20%
- 100/3%
- 30%

**Answer: (2) 20%**

**Explanation:-
**The ratio of the cost price and sale price = 5: 6

Then, Let the cost price be 5X and sale price is 6X.

Profit = 6X – 5X

= X

Then, Profit% = X x 100/5X

= 20%

Hence, the answer is (2) 20%.
