You must recognize first the amount of sweet potatoes per kilo and how much it costs.
In the problem, 80 kilos of sweet potatoes were bought for 25 pesos per kilo.

Multiply those figures and you will get 2000 pesos as answer. Therefore Mang Ador had 2000 as his capital.
Now, recognize that he sold all the sweet potatoes at 32 pesos per kilo. Apply simple math and multiply 80 to 32. You will get 2560 pesos. This time you subtract 2560 from 2000. The answer is 560. He therefore gained 560 pesos.

hope this helps! :)

1 kilo=P 32

Therefore multiply:
P 32 x 80=P 2,560

Considering his loss of:
80 kg x P 25=P 2,000

He gained:
P 2,560 - P 2,000=P 560

Hope this helps =)
