# What will be the Percentage of Profit on Article? If

Some articles were bought at the rate of Rs.5 per 6 articles and sold at the rate of Rs.6 per 5 articles. Profit percent is:

- 44%
- 33%
- Cannot be said
- None of these

**Answer: (4) None of these.
Explanation:-**

Cost price of 6 articles = Rs.5

Then, cost price of 1 article = 5/6

Selling price of 5 articles = Rs.6

Then, the selling price of 1 article = 6/5

Profit = 6/5 – 5/6

= (36 – 30)/30

= 6/30 = 1/5

Profit% = (1/5) x 100/(5/6)

= 6 x 100/25

= 24 %

Hence, the profit % is 24%.
