# Profit & Loss

IMPORTANT FACTS 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. 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. IMPORTANT FORMULAE 1. 2. 3. 4. Gain = (S.P.) - (C.P.) Loss = (C.P.) - (S.P.) Loss or gain is always reckoned on C.P. Gain Percentage: (Gain %) Gain x 100 Gain % = C.P. Loss Percentage: (Loss %) Loss x 100 Loss % = C.P. Selling Price: (S.P.) (100 + Gain %) SP = x C.P 100 Selling Price: (S.P.) (100 - Loss %) SP = x C.P. 100 Cost Price: (C.P.) C.P. = 9. 100 (100 + Gain %) x S.P.

Cost Price: (C.P.) C.P. = 100 (100 - Loss %) x S.P.

10. If an article is sold at a gain of say 35%, then S.P. = 135% of C.P. 11. If an article is sold at a loss of say, 35% then S.P. = 65% of C.P. incurs a loss given by: Common Loss and Gain % 2 Loss % = = 10
