Let selling price of 1 banana be Rs.1

Selling price of 15 dozen Bananas = 15*12*1 = Rs.180
Loss = selling price of 20 bananas = Rs.20
Cost price of 15 dozen Bananas = 180+20 = Rs.200
Loss percentage = 20*100/200= 10%

Let selling price of 1 packet is Rs.1

Then, selling price of 100 packets = Rs.100
Profit = selling price of 20 packets = Rs.20
Cost price = Rs.100- Rs.20 = Rs.80
Profit percentage = 20*100/80= 25%

1. Profit percentage (1870-1700)/1700 * 100 = 10%

2. CP * 120/100 = 8400. 
CP = 8400*100/120 = Rs.7000

3. SP = 16000* 109/100 = Rs.17440
Profit = 17440-16000 = Rs.1440

4. SP = 22450 * 90/100 = Rs.20205
