therefore,CP of 1 mango = x/20

let SP of 15 mangoes be x.

therefore, SP of 1 mango = x/15

Profit=SP-CP

=(x/15)- (x/20)

=(4x-3x)/60

=7x/60

Profit percent = [(7x/60)/(x/20)]*100

=700/3 %

=233 1/3 %

then cp of 20 mangoes = 20 Rs.

given sp of 15 mangoes = cp of 20 mangoes = 20 Rs

then sp of 1 mango = 20 /15

sp - cp = 20/15 - 1 = 5/15 = profit (sp>cp)

profit% = profit

____ x 100

cost price

= 5/15

____ x 100

1

= 100 / 3 = 33.33%
