ยทย ย ย ย ย ย ย Profit/gain = SP โ CP
ยทย ย ย ย ย ย ย Profit % = Profit/(C P)ร100
ยทย ย ย ย ย ย ย S P = (100+gain % )/100ย  รC P
ยทย ย ย ย ย ย ย C P = 100/(100+gain %)รS P
Loss:
If the overall Cost Price exceeds the selling price of the buyer then he is said to have incurred loss.
ยทย ย ย ย ย ย ย Loss = C P โ S P
ยทย ย ย ย ย ย ย Loss % = LOSS/(C P)ร100
ยทย ย ย ย ย ย ย S P = (100-loss %)/100รC P
ยทย ย ย ย ย ย ย C P = 100/(100-loss %)รS P
Mark-up Price:
ยทย ย ย ย ย ย ย Generally the SP is less than the marked price (MP) the difference MP โ SP is known as discount, D.
ยทย ย ย ย ย ย ย Discount = M P โ S P
ยทย ย ย ย ย ย ย Discount %, D% = (Discount) / (M P) ร100
