Let the cost price of one mango = Re. 1
cost price of 12 mangoes = 1×12 = Rs. 12

cost price of 12 mangoes is equal to the selling price of 15 mangoes
Selling price of 15 mangoes = Rs. 12
Selling price of 1 mango = Rs.12 ÷ 15 = Rs. 0.80

loss = 1 - 0.08 = 0.20
loss % = (loss/CP)×100 = (0.20/1)×100 = 20%

loss is 20%

C.P of 12 mangoes=S.P of 15 mangoes
S.P of 12 mangoes=C.P of 15 mangoes (C.P becomes S.P and S.P become C.P)

Let the price of each unit be Rs. 1

C.P>S.P =loss

loss=C.P-S.P
=Rs.15-Rs12
=Rs.3

loss%=loss/C.P*100
=3/15*100
=20%
