Cost Price(CP) : The Price at which a particular item purchased, is called its Cost Price.
Selling Price (SP): The price at which a particular item is sold, called its Selling Price.
Profit: If Selling Price of an item is more than Cost Price , then vendor is said to have a Profit.
Loss: if Selling Price of an item is less than Cost Price, the vendor said to have a Loss.


Formulas Profit = SP – CP.
Profit % = Profit/(CP)×100.
SP = ((100+Profit% )/100)×CP.
CP = (100/(100+Profit%))×SP.


Loss = CP – SP.
Loss% = Loss/(CP)×100.
SP = ((100-loss%)/100)×CP.
CP = (100/(100-loss%))×SP.
