    B sells it to C at loss of 20%. that means 520 is 80% of the B paid to A. suppose PB is the price B paid to A. 0.8 PB = 520 PB = 650 so the answer for number 1 is $650 now suppose PA is the cost price of A A sells bicycle to B at a profit of 30% , that means the cost price of B is 130% the cost price of A 1.3 PA = 650 PA = 500 so the answer for number 2 is $500
