## Profit and Loss – Quantitative Aptitude

**Basic Concepts:**

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.

**Formulas****:**

**C P**= 100/(100+gain %)×S P**S P**= (100+gain % )/100 ×C P**Profit**% = Profit/(C P)×100**Profit/gain**= SP – CP**Loss**= C P – S P**Loss**% = LOSS/(C P)×100**S P**= (100-loss %)/100×C P**C P**= 100/(100-loss %)×S P- When a person sells two similar items, one at a gain of say x%, and the other at a loss of x%, then the seller always incurs a loss given by:
**x**^{2}/100 - If a trader professes to sell his goods at cost price, but uses false weights, then
**Gain% = [Error/(True Value-Error)] x100**
