## How to calculate profit and loss?

Following is the formula for calculating the profit and loss of a business transaction.
Profit = selling price - cost
Profit Percentage = profit / cost
Profit Margin = profit / selling price

## Profit Example

Let's look at the example of how to calculate the profit of a transaction. A merchant bought a product for \$10 and he sold it for \$15.

Profit = \$15 - \$10 = \$5
Profit Percentage = \$5/\$10 = 50%
Profit Margin = \$5/\$15 = 33%

In this transaction, the merchant has a profit of \$5, a profit margin of 33%, and a profit percentage of 50%.

## Loss Example

Assume the merchant still buys the same product for \$10, but he sold the item for only \$5. Following is how much he would lose in this transaction.

Loss = \$5-\$10 = -\$5
Loss Percentage = -\$5/\$10 = -50%
Loss Margin = \$-5/\$5 = -100%

In this example, the merchant has a loss on the transaction. His loss is \$5, a loss margin of 100%, and a loss percentage of 50%.
