Profit and loss:

• Cost Price: The price, at which an product is purchased (CP).
• Marked price: actual price or label price which shown on product.(MRP)
• Selling price: The product sold price.(SP)
• Profit: If  selling_price is greater than cost_price then its a profit.(selling_price-cost_price)
• Loss: if  selling_price is less than cost_price then its a Loss.(cost_price-selling_price)
• Discount:  marked_price-selling_price.
• discount_percentage=((marked_price-selling_price)/marked_price)*100;
• profit=selling_price-cost_price;
• if(selling_price>cost_price)
• profit_percentage=((selling_price-cost_price)/cost_price)*100;
• if(selling_price<cost_price)
• loss_percentage=((cost_price-selling_price)/cost_price)*100;

6. public class ProfitNLoss {
7.
8. public static void main(String[] args) {

10.      double profit,profit_percentage=0;
11.
12.
13.         double cost_price=100;
14.
15.         double selling_price=150;
16.
17.         if(selling_price>cost_price){
18.         profit_percentage=((selling_price-cost_price)/cost_price)*100;
19.         profit=selling_price-cost_price;
20.
21.         System.out.println("Profit:="+profit+"\n profit Percentage:="+profit_percentage+"%");

16.
17.
18.         discount=(marked_price-selling_price);
