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 prices, abbreviated as S.P.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Profit/gain = SP â€“ CP
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Profit % = Profit/(C P)Ã—100
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â S P = (100+gain % )/100Â  Ã—C P
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â C P = 100/(100+gain %)Ã—S P
Loss:
If the overall Cost Price exceeds the selling price of the buyer then he is said to have incurred loss.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Loss = C P â€“ S P
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Loss % = LOSS/(C P)Ã—100
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â S P = (100-loss %)/100Ã—C P
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â C P = 100/(100-loss %)Ã—S P
Mark-up Price:
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Generally the SP is less than the marked price (MP) the difference MP â€“ SP is known as discount, D.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Discount = M P â€“ S P
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Discount %, D% = (Discount) / (M P) Ã—100
