Question

Let us assume the cost proce be ( x ).
Jhen, sellimig price ( =x+frac{320}{10025} x=frac{21 x}{5} )
Now, new wat prive in ( =x+frac{28}{100} x=frac{5 a}{4} )
Qo New Profit ( =frac{21 x}{5}-frac{5 a}{4}=frac{87-25 x}{20}=frac{59 a}{20} )
Now, percutage ( =frac{59 x}{204} times 100 )
( frac{21 x}{5} )
[
begin{array}{l}
=frac{59 x}{89} x 100
=70.28 %
end{array}
]
So, profit us ( 70.23 % ) of the elling proice.
