Dear NEHAL


let initial velocity of bullet is v1 and velocity after piercing the first plate is v2 and final velocity is v3


20*V1 = 20*V2 + 1000*V3 .......................1


and  


 20*V2 = 20*V3 + 2980*V3   .....................2




from equation 1 and 2  eleminate V3


 20V1 = 20*V2 + 1000(20/3000) V2


 or  V1 = 4/3 V2


 % loss of initial velocity  = (V1 -V2 )/V1  * 100


                                     =25 %
