Expert Answer:

### Let the cost price of one buffalo is Rs. x and that of the other buffalo be Rs. y
S.P. of 1st buffalo = Rs. 20000
i.e. x + 5% of x = 20000
i.e. x = 19047.61
Therefore, cost price of 1st buffalo is Rs. 19047.61
S.P. of 2nd buffalo = Rs. 20000
i.e. y - 10% of x = 20000
i.e. y = 22222.22
Therefore, cost price of 2nd buffalo is Rs. 22222.22
Cost price of both the buffalos = 19047.61+22222.22 = Rs. 41269.83
Selling price of both the buffalos = Rs. 40000
Overall loss = Rs. 1269.83

i.e. y - 10% of x = 20000

i.e. y = 22222.22

Therefore, cost price of 2nd buffalo is Rs. 22222.22

Cost price of both the buffalos = 19047.61+22222.22 = Rs. 41269.83

Selling price of both the buffalos = Rs. 40000

Overall loss = Rs. 1269.83
