# Calculate Profit Percent

We will learn how to calculate profit percent. Profit percentage is always calculated on cost price (C.P.).

Formula to find profit% = profit/C.P. × 100%.

1. By selling goods for $9000; a profit of$1000 is made. Find the profit percent.

Solution:

Given, selling price of goods = $9000 and profit made =$1000

Therefore, C.P. = S.P. - profit

= $9000 -$1000

= $8000 And, profit% = (profit/cost price) × 100% = (1000/8000) × 100% = (1/8) × 100% = 12.5% Therefore, profit percent by selling goods is 12.5%. More examples to calculate profit percent: 2. By selling a machine at$240 a man gains 25%. What would be his gain percent by selling the machine at $216? Solution: Let cost price (C.P.) =$ 100

Gain = 25%

Selling price = $100 +$25 = $125 If selling price is$125, then cost price is $100. If selling price is$1, then cost price is $(100/125) If selling price is$240, then cost price is $100/125 × 240 =$192

Now, if the S.P. is $216, then gain =$216 - $192 =$24

Gain% = gain/cost Price (C.P.) × 100

= 24/192 × 100

= 25/2

= 12      1/2

Therefore, gain percent by selling a machine is 12  1/2%.

3. If the selling price of 20 books is the same as the cost price of 21 books. Find the profit percent.

Solution:

Let cost price of each book be $1 Cost price of 20 books =$1 × 20 = $20. Selling price of 20 books = cost price of 21 books =$21.

Profit = selling price - cost price

= $21 -$20

= \$1

Profits% = profit/cost price × 100

= 1/20 × 100

= 100/20

= 5

Therefore, profit percent is 5%.
