 1.Let the C.P be Rs xS.P=Rs 4/5x Since C.P>S.P, therefore loss Loss=C.PS.P=x  4/5x= Rs x/5 Loss%=Loss/C.P * 100=x/5/x*100=20%

 Solution 5: Let the CP for John be Rs. 100. Loss%=(loss*100)/CP. =>Loss=(9*100)/100. =>Loss=Rs. 9. Now, SP = CPloss =>SP = 1009 =>SP=Rs. 91. Now, when SP is Rs. 91 CP = 100 Rs. when SP is Re. 1 CP = 100/91 Rs. when SP is Rs. 637 CP = 100/91*637 Rs. => CP = Rs. 100*7 [637/91 = 7]. => CP = Rs. 700. Gain = Gain%*CP. => Gain = 5/100*700. => Gain = 5*7 [700/100 = 7]. => Gain = Rs. 35. Therefore in order to obtain a gain of 5% John has to sell his bicycle for Rs. (700+35). => SP = Rs. 735. ANSWER
