A man purchased some lemons and sold at 20 for rs.160 at 20% loss. If he want 20% profit then how many lemons should he sell for rs 240 ? Price =80:120=2:3 Quantity =3:2 3>=20 2>40/3 160>=40/3 1>=1/12 240>=240*/12=20 How quantity ratio is obtained??

That result gets 0% profit, it isn't possible to get 20% with that selling price as it is 20% (the purchase price is 200). I suspect the question is worded wrong.
