Given:
profit of 10 per bag of basmati rice
loss of 5 per bag of non-basmati rice

1) 3,000 bags of basmati rice * 10 = 30,000 profit
5,000 bags of non-basmati rice * 5 = 25,000 loss

30,000 - 25,000 = 5,000 net profit

2) Let x be the number of bags of basmati rice
10x = 6,400*5
10x = 32,000
x = 32,000/10
x = 3,200 bags of basmati rice.
