Cost price of mango : Rs X

at 25% profit, the selling price = 125% X = 1.25 X

At 50% profit, the selling price = Rs 1.25 X + Rs 1

so 150% X = Rs 1.25 X + Rs 1

1.50 X = 1.25 X + 1

0.25 X = 1

X = 4

Original cost = Rs 4 each mango

Original selling price = 1.25 X = Rs 5

the last selling price = 1.50 X = Rs 6

at 25% profit, the selling price = 125% X = 1.25 X

At 50% profit, the selling price = Rs 1.25 X + Rs 1

so 150% X = Rs 1.25 X + Rs 1

1.50 X = 1.25 X + 1

0.25 X = 1

X = 4

Original cost = Rs 4 each mango

Original selling price = 1.25 X = Rs 5

the last selling price = 1.50 X = Rs 6
