Cost Price (CP)= The price at which you buy
Selling Price (SP)= The price at which you sell
Marked Price (MP)= The price which is mentioned

In case of profit or gain (i.e., if SP > CP),
Profit = SP - CP
Profit% = ((SP - CP)* 100)/CP = (Profit* 100)/CP

In case of loss (i.e., if SP < CP),
Loss = CP - SP
Loss% = ((CP - SP)* 100)/CP = (Loss * 100)/CP


If two articles are sold at the same price with a profit of x % on one and a loss of x % on the other, the net loss % = (x2/100)%

If two articles bought at the same price are sold with a profit of x % on one and a loss of x % on the other, then overall there will be No Profit No Loss
