# Some articles were bought at 6 for Ã¢â€šÂ¹5 and sold at 5 for Ã¢â€šÂ¹6. Find the gain percent.

**Given :**

The cost price of 6 articles $= â‚¹5$.

The selling price of 5 articles $= â‚¹6$.

**To do :**

We have to find the gain percent.

**Solution :**

The cost price of 6 articles $= â‚¹5$

The cost price of 1 article $= â‚¹\frac{5}{6}$

The selling price of 5 articles $= â‚¹6$

The selling price of 1 article $= â‚¹ \frac{6}{5}$

Gain % $= \frac{\frac{6}{5} - \frac{5}{6}}{\frac{5}{6}} \times 100$

$ = \frac{\frac{36-25}{30}}{\frac{5}{6}} \times 100$

$ = \frac{\frac{11}{30}}{\frac{5}{6}} \times 100$

$ = \frac{11}{30} \times \frac{6}{5} \times 100$

$ = \frac{11}{25} \times 100$

$ = 11 \times 4 = 44$

**Therefore, the gain percent is 44%.**
