C= cost price
S = selling price
Profit = SP - CP

1st case

S - C = 25S/100
C = 3S/4

2nd case, Selling price = S+ X where X is the increase.

newS - C = 100/3 % of newS
(S+X) - C = (S+X)/3
C = 2(X+S)/3

In both case, C is the same.
3S/4 = 2(X+S)/3

X = S/8

% increase = X*100/S = 12.5%

I guess an easier way is to assume the SP as 100. So htat makes the cp=75

100+x-75=1/3(100+x)

x=12.5%
