    Answer:

    cost price:-

    cost of 1 kg – 35/-

    so cost of 20 kg = 35×20 =700

    so total cost price is 700

    now selling price

    amount of mixture he sold = 20kg(chilli) +5kg( saw dust) = 25 kg

    selling price of one kg = rs 50

    selling price of 25 kg = 25×50= 1250

    profit = selling price – cost price

    => rs 1250 – rs 700

    = rs 550
