Solution(By Apex Team)

Let the ware listed x% above C.P. and Let C.P. be W According to question, $\mathrm{W} \times\left(1+\frac{\mathrm{x}}{100}\right) \times \frac{4}{5} \times 12 \times \frac{1}{16}=\mathrm{W} \times \frac{6}{5}$ Solving we get x = 100 Thus his wares were listed 100% above C.P.
