**POINTS TO REMEMBER**

- The Cost Price (C.P.) of an article is the price at which the article is bought.
- The Selling Price (S.P.) of an article is the price at which the article is sold.
- If
**Selling Price**of an article is more than its cost price ; it is sold at a**profit (gain)**

**Profit = Selling Price-Cost Price**

**i.e., Profit (gain) = S.P. – C.P. and S.P. = C.P. + Gain** - If Selling Price of an article is less than its cost price ; it is sold at a loss.

**Loss = Cost Price – Selling Price**

i.e.,**Loss = C.P. – S.P. and S.P. = C.P. — Loss** - Profit percent and loss percent are always calculated on cost price (C.P.) only.

i.e.,**(i)**Profit % = x 100% andLoss % = x 100%

(ii) **Selling Price**= Marked price – Discount

i.e., S.P. = M.P.—(piscount

**Note : (i)**Discount is calculated on marked price (M.P.)

**(ii)**Marked price is also written as List price.
