Answer:
       Soution:
             Amount = 400
             Let the initial price of 1kg rice = x
             therefore ,
                      Quantity of Rice* Price of 1kg of rice = Amount
                     Quantity of Rice  (Q1)= 400/x  ----- (ist Equation)
After Increment of Price ,
       Price of 1 kg Rice  = 125%x  = 125/100x = 1.25x
       Quantity of Rice becomes = Q1 - 20 Kg (Given)
           We know that ,
         Quantity of Rice *Price of 1 kg Rice = Amount
            Quantity of Rice (Q2)  = 400/1.25x ------(2nd Equation)
              We know that ,
                      Q2 = Q1 - 20
                     and Q1 = 400 /x (From Ist Equation)
hence ,
            Substituting Q1 and Q2 in 2nd , we get
                     400/x - 20 =400/1.25x
             or 400/x - 400/1.25x - 20 =0
             or 400/x[1 - 1/1.25] - 20 = 0
              or 400 /x [(1.25 - 1)/1.25] - 20 = 0
             or 400/x *1/1.25 = 20
             or 400/x * 100/125 = 20
             or 400/x *4/5 = 20
             or 80/x *4 = 20
         or 320 / x = 20
         or x = 320/20
         or x = 16
Hence the price of 1 kg of Rice = 16  rupees
therefore , Increased price of 1 kg rice = 1.25*16 = 20 rupees
   and Increase in 1 kg price = 20 - 16 = 4 Rupees

Hope this helps you!!

Thank You!!
