5 pens are purchased at 4 rs each.then 4 pens are sold at 5 rs each.what is the profit or loss percentage in the transaction

no profit or no loss

no profit or no loss

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.

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%
