    Answer:

    2000 fruits

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the total number of spoiled fruits be x.

    According to question,

    60% of spoiled fruits were sold.

    60% of x = 48

    => 60/100 × x = 48

    => x = 48 × 100/60 = 80

    As it is given,

    There is 1 spoiled fruit for every 25 fruits.

    Then, number of fruits for 80 spoiled fruits

    = 25 × 80 = 2000
