Solution(By Apex Team)

Let the marked price = Rs. 100
Then, SP = 100 – 20% of 100 = Rs. 80
Profit = 25%
Let His CP = X
SP = 80
X + 25% of X = 80
Hence, X $=\text { Rs. } \frac{100 \times 80}{125}=\text { Rs. } 64$
CP = Rs. 64
Profit after selling on marked price = 100 – 64 = Rs. 36
% gain = $\large\frac{36 \times 100}{64}$ = 56.25%
