Maths Work
=========================================================
If , object sold at 15% loss ---

100% is the total cost price. then sell price ratio will be 75:100

More simply.. by making it a fraction - 75/100 and cutting it down - 3/4
the ratio will be 3:4 - sell price ratio(S.P).

cost price = 4:4

-> Experimenting with numbers

To understand all these ... much clearly.. then lets take the example of \$100.

Suppose, the cost price is \$100. Given, the loss is \$15, we can determine the cost price as \$75.
Because,

Clue: S.P﻿ = Sell price
C.P= Cost price

In this way, the ratio can be determined as:

S.P= 75:100 or 3/4
C.P= 100:100 or 4/4

Tip: Always understand math problems by experimenting with given percentages.
=========================================================

Conclusions
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, after all those math work , I more specifically conclude ---

the ratio of C.P(cost price) = 4:4

the ratio of S.P(sell price)= 3:4

Sorry.. the ratio would be ---S.P:C.P= 75:100
= 3/4
THERE ARE NOT TWO RATIOS.. EXTREMELY SORRYYY.. :-(
first be sure and then answer
