**Loss percent Shortcut tricks**

**Formula: Loss% = (Loss x 100/C.P)**

**Example 1:**

A man purchased a toy for Rs. 120 and sold it for Rs. 90, Find the loss Percent.

**Answer :**

C.P = 120 and S.P =90

So We Know the formula of Loss = C. P – S.P . Loss = (120 – 90) = 30

Loss% = 30 x 100/120 = 25%

So, the loss Percent is 25%.

**Example 2:**

Anil purchased a mobile for Rs. 12000 and sold it for Rs. 8000, Find the loss Percent.

**Answer :**

C.P = 12000 and S.P =8000

So We Know the formula of Loss = C. P – S.P, Loss = (12000 – 8000) = 4000

%Loss = 4000 x 100/12000 = 33.33%

So, the loss Percent is 33.33%

**Example 3:**

10% loss on selling price is what percent loss on the cost price ?

**Answer :**

consider selling price be = Rs.100, Then loss = Rs.10

Cost price = Rs.( 100 + 10 ) = 110

So, loss% = ( 10 / 110 x 100 ) = 100 / 11 %

**Example 4 :**

A farmer purchased a cow for Rs. 200 and sold it for Rs. 180, Find the loss Percent.

**Answer :**

C.P = 200 and S.P =180

So We Know the formula of Loss = C. P – S.P . Loss = (200 – 180) =20

%Loss = 20 x 100/200 = 10%.

So, the loss Percent is 10%.
