We will learn how to find selling price when cost price and profit or loss are given.

**I. Formula to find
selling price when cost price and profit percent are given;**

Profit = profit% × cost price

Therefore, selling price = cost price + profit.

**II. Formula to find
selling price when cost price and loss percent are given;**

Loss = loss% × cost price

Therefore, selling price = cost price - loss.

**1.** At what price should Ben sell her laptop which costs her $625, to make a gain of 20%?

**Solution:**

Given, cost price = $625

Profit = 20% of cost price

= 20/100 × $625

= $125 [since, profit% is always on C.P.]

And selling price = cost price + profit

= $625 + $125

= $750

Hence, selling price = $750

**2.** A shopkeeper buys digital camera at $2400 each. Due to price fall in the market, he was forced to sell them at a loss of 15%. Find the selling price of each digital camera.

**Solution:**

Given, cost price = $2400

Loss = 15% of cost price

= 15/100 × $2400

= $360

And selling price = cost price - loss

= $2,400 - $360

= $2040

Thus, the required selling price of each digital camera is $2040.

**3.** Mike bought a
laptop for $5000 and sold it at a profit of 10%. Find the profit and the
selling price of the laptop.

**Solution:**

Given, cost price of a laptop = $5000

Therefore, profit = profit% of cost price; (since, profit is always calculated on C.P.)

= 10% × $5000

= 10/100 × $5000

= $500

And selling price = cost price + profit

= $5000 + $500

= $5500

**4.** James purchases
an article for $450 and sold it at 20% loss. Find the loss and selling rice of
the article.

**Solution:**

Given, cost price of an article = $450

Loss% = 20%

Therefore, loss = loss% of cost price

= 20% × $450

= 20/100 × $450

= $90

And selling price = cost price - loss

= $450 - $90

= $360

**5.** Jenny bought an
article for $450. For how much should she sell the article to gain 10%?

**Solution:**

Given, cost price = $450

Gain = 10% of cost price

= 10/100 × $450

= $45 [since, gain% is always on C.P.]

And selling price = cost price + gain

= $450 + $45

= $495

**6.** Jack purchased
a watch for $800 and sold it at 25% loss to his friend. Find the selling price.

**Solution:**

Given, cost price = $800

Loss = 25% of cost price

= 25/100 × $800

= $200 [since, loss% is always on C.P.]

And selling price = cost price - loss

= $800 - $200

= $600
