Find Selling Price from given Profit Percentage and Cost

Given the Cost price and Profit Percentage 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 ``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));` `}` `}`
