and sale price of 10 pen is x and cost of per pen is x/10

so the profit : {(x/8 - x/10)/x/8} * 100 = you will get the percentage of profit.

C.P of 10 pens is = Rs 10

S.P of 10 pens is = C.P of 8 pens = Rs 8

Since, C.P>S.P,

Therefore, Loss = C.P - S.P

= Rs 10 - Rs 8 = Rs 2

Hence, Loss% = (Loss/C.P) x 100

= (2/10) x 100

= 20%
