profit

Still we have one pen in hand.
so we can sell it for 5 rs. so profit is 5 rs.
percentage is (5/20)*100= 25% profit.

percent of first 5 pens is 125% and then the percent of another 4 pens is 100% so profit is 25%.

cp of 1 pen=4/5 sp of 1 pen

cp of 1 pen=4/5
sp of 1 pen =5/4
profit=5/4-4/5
        =9/25
profit%=Profit *100/cp
that is 56.25%

profit

C.P of 1 pen=Rs 4
S.P of 1 pen=Rs 5
profit=S.P-C.P=5-4=1
Profit%=(Profit / C.P)*100=(1/4)*100=25%
