and Profit Percentage 

*** QuickLaTeX cannot compile formula:

Error: Nothing to show, formula is empty

of an item, the task is to calculate the Selling Price.
Examples: 
 

Input: CP = 500, Profit% = 20
Output: SP = 600

Input: CP = 720, Profit% = 13
Output: SP = 813.6

Approach: 
 

  1. Find the Decimal Equivalent of the profit Percentage, for this divide the percentage by 100.
  2. Add 1 to get the decimal Equivalent of unit price increase.
  3. Take product of Cost price with the above result to get the selling price.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
Program:
 

C++




// C++ implementation of above approach
 
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to calculate the Selling Price
float SellingPrice(float CP, float PP)
{
 
    // Decimal Equivalent of Profit Percentage
    float P_decimal = 1 + (PP / 100);
 
    // Find the Selling Price
    float res = P_decimal * CP;
 
    // return the calculated Selling Price
    return res;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
 
    // Get the CP and Profit%
    float C = 720, P = 13;
 
    // Printing the returned value
    cout << SellingPrice(C, P);
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java implementation of above approach
 
import java.util.*;
 
class solution
{
 
// Function to calculate the Selling Price
static float SellingPrice(float CP, float PP)
{
 
    // Decimal Equivalent of Profit Percentage
    float P_decimal = 1 + (PP / 100);
 
    // Find the Selling Price
    float res = P_decimal * CP;
 
    // return the calculated Selling Price
    return res;
}
 
// Driver code
public static void main(String args[])
{
 
    // Get the CP and Profit%
    float C = 720, P = 13;
 
    // Printing the returned value
    System.out.println(SellingPrice(C, P));
 
}
 
}

Python3




# Python 3 implementation of
# above approach
 
# Function to calculate the
# Selling Price
def SellingPrice (CP, PP):
     
    # Decimal Equivalent of
    # Profit Percentage
    Pdecimal = 1 + ( PP / 100 )
     
    res = Pdecimal * CP
     
    # return the calculated
    # Selling Price
    return res
 
# Driver code
if __name__ == "__main__" :
 
    # Get the CP and Profit %
    C = 720
    P = 13
     
    # Printing the returned value
    print(SellingPrice(C, P))

C#




// C# implementation of above approach
using System;
 
class GFG
{
 
// calculate Nth term of series
static float SellingPrice(float CP,
                          float PP)
{
    // Decimal Equivalent of
    // Profit Percentage
    float P_decimal = 1 + (PP / 100);
 
    // Find the Selling Price
    float res = P_decimal * CP;
 
    // return the calculated
    // Selling Price
    return res;
}
 
// Driver Code
public static void Main()
{
    // Get the CP Profit%
    float C = 720, P = 13;
 
    // Printing the returned value
    Console.Write(SellingPrice(C,P));
}
}

PHP




<?php
// PHP implementation of above approach
 
// Function to calculate the Selling Price
function SellingPrice($CP, $PP)
{
 
    // Decimal Equivalent of Profit Percentage
    $P_decimal = 1 + ($PP / 100);
 
    // Find the Selling Price
    $res = $P_decimal * $CP;
 
    // return the calculated Selling Price
    return $res;
}
 
// Driver code
 
    // Get the CP and Profit%
    $C = 720;
    $P = 13;
 
    // Printing the returned value
    echo SellingPrice($C, $P);
 
// this code is contributed by mits
?>

Javascript




<script>
 
// Javascript implementation of above approach
 
// Function to calculate the Selling Price
function SellingPrice(CP, PP)
{
 
    // Decimal Equivalent of Profit Percentage
    var P_decimal = 1 + (PP / 100);
 
    // Find the Selling Price
    var res = P_decimal * CP;
 
    // return the calculated Selling Price
    return res.toFixed(1);
}
 
// Driver code
// Get the CP and Profit%
var C = 720, P = 13;
// Printing the returned value
document.write( SellingPrice(C, P));
 
 
</script>
Output: 
813.6
