Cost price of books = 700 × 2 = Rs. 1400
Profit of 25% on one book will give profit = 25% of 700 = Rs. 175
Loss of 20% on one book will give loss = 20% of 700 = Rs. 140
SP of one book with profit = 700 + 175 = Rs. 875
SP of one book with loss = 700 - 140 = Rs. 560
Total SP = 875 + 560 = Rs. 1435
Profit = SP - CP
= 1435 - 1400 = Rs. 35
Now find profit percentage you get 2.5%.
