Profit and Loss
Cost Price: The price at which an article is purchased, is called its cost price, abbreviated as C.P.
Selling Price: The price at which an article is sold, is called its selling price, abbreviated as S.P.
Profit or Gain: If S.P. is greater than C.P., the seller is said to have a profit or gain.
Loss: If S.P. is less than C.P., the seller is said to have incurred a loss.
1. Gain: SP – CP
2. Loss: CP – SP
3. Loss or gain is always reckoned on CP
4. Gain %: Gain x 100 / CP
5. Loss %: Loss x 100 / CP
6. SP: 100 + Gain% / 100 x CP
7. SP: 100 – Loss % / 100 x CP
8. CP: 100 / 100 + Gain % x SP
9. CP: 100 / 100 – Loss % x SP
10. If an article is sold at a gain of say, 35 %, then SP = 135 % of CP
11. If an article is sold at a loss of say, 35 % then SP = 65 % of CP
