We will learn how to calculate profit and selling price of an article. We know, selling price is the price at which an article is sold and the seller makes a profit when the selling price is more than the cost price.

Solved examples:

**1.** A vendor sold 600 quintals of wheat at a gain of 7%. If one quintal of wheat cost him $ 250 and his total overhead charges for transportation, etc., were $ 1,000, find his total profit and the selling price of 600 quintals of wheat.

**Solution:**

Cost of one quintal of wheat = $250

Therefore, cost of 600 quintals of wheat = $250 × $600 = $150,000.

Overhead charges = $ 1,000.

Hence, cost price (C.P.) = $150,000 + $1,000 = $151,000.

gain = 7%

Net profit = 7% of $151000

= $7/100 × 151,000

= $1057000/100

= $10,570

Selling price (S.P.) = cost price (C.P.) + gain

= $(151,000 + 10,570)

= $161,570.

Therefore, total gain is $10,570 and the selling price is $ 161,570.

**2.** Mike bought a
laptop for $5000 and sold it at a profit of 105. Find the profit and the
selling price of the laptop.

**Solution:**

Given, C.P. of a laptop = $5000 and profit% of it = 10%

Therefore, profit = profit% of C.P.; (we know, profit is always calculated on C.P.)

= 10% × $5000

= (10/100) × $5000

= $500

And, S.P. = C.P. + profit

= $5000 + $500

= $5500

Therefore, profit is $500 and the selling price is $5500.
