Let the original cost price be Rs.100.
selling price to get a gain 5% = Rs.105
selling price to get a loss 5% = Rs. 95
 
difference in selling prices = Rs.10
 
If the difference is Rs.10, then original cost price Rs.100
If the difference is Rs.16.50, then original cost price = (100/10)×16.50 =  Rs. 165
