‎Let $R$ be a ring‎ ‎with the Jacobson radical $J(R)$ and let $\pi\colon R\to R/J(R)$ be‎ the canonical map‎. ‎Then $\pi$ induces an order preserving group homomorphism‎ ‎$K_0\pi\colon K_0(R)\to K_0(R/J(R))$ and an‎ ‎affine continuous map $S(K_0\pi)$ between the state space $St(R/J(R))$ and the‎ ‎state space $St(R).$‎ ‎In this paper‎, ‎we consider the natural affine map $S(K_0\pi).$ We give a condition under which $S(K_0\pi)$ is‎ ‎an affine homeomorphism‎. ‎At the same time‎, ‎we discuss the relationship between semilocal rings and semiperfect rings by using the‎ ‎affine map $S(K_0\pi).$
