Armani sells a pair of jeans at a 20% discount, but still makes a gross profit of 20% of the cost. What percent of the cost would the gross profit on the item have been if it has been sold without the discount?

C 50%

Cost = x
Actual = nx
Discounted = 0.8nx
Given -> 0.8nx -x = 0.2x => n = 1.5
We need to find nx - x = 1.5x - x = 0.5 or 50%
