# What will be the value of x? If

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

- 15
- 16
- 18
- 25

**Answer: (2) 16
Explanation:-**

Let the CP of articles be Rs.X.

S.P. of X articles = Rs.20

Profit = 20 – X

Therefore, (20 – X) x 100/X = 25

2000 – 100X = 25X

125X = 2000

X = 2000/125

X = 16

Hence, the value of X is 16.
