A 20% less than N

Assume P = 1000 and N = 100

Hence price per tree = \$10

IF new price = 25/2 then N = 1000*2/25 = 80

which is 20% less

Given price is increased by 1/4

Using same amount he can plant only 4/5 ie 80%

A) 20% less than N

Cost per plant (estimated) = P/N
(actual) = 5P/N
No of plants that can be planted using P dollars = P * (4N/5P)

= 80% of N
