Then Selling price (S.P) = (100+P)% x C.P

**Hint 2 : **

Cost price and loss percentage are given.

Cost price = C.P, Loss percentage = L%

Then Selling price (S.P) = (100 - L)% x C.P

**Hint 3 : **

Profit = S.P - C.P

Loss = C.P - S.P

**Hint 4 : **

Cost price and Profit are given

Cost price = C.P, Profit = "K"

**Hint 5 : **

Cost price and Loss are given

Cost price = C.P, Loss = "K"

**Hint 6 : **

Selling price and profit percentage are given.

How to find cost price ?

Use "Hint 1" and solve for C.P

**Hint 7 : **

Selling price and loss percentage are given.

How to find cost price ?

Use "Hint 2" and solve for C.P

**Hint 8 : **

Marked Price : It is the price before discount given

Selling price = Marked price - Discount value

**Hint 9 : **

Marked price = M.P, Discount = D%

Then, Discount value = (D% ) x M.P

Selling price (S.P) = (100 - D)% x M.P

**Hint 10 : **

Marked price (M.P) and discount value are given.

Then shortcut to find the discount percentage is,

**Hint 11 : **

RETAILER USING FALSE WEIGHT :
