# Python Program to find the profit or loss when CP of N items is equal to SP of M items

GivenÂ andÂ denoting that the Cost Price of N articles is equal to the Selling Price of M articles. The task is to determine the profit or Loss percentage.

Examples:Â

```Input:  N = 8, M = 9
Output: Loss = -11.11%

Input:  N = 8, M = 5
Output: Profit = 60%```

Formula:-
Â

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## Python3

 `# Python 3 implementation of above formula `` ` `# Function to calculate Profit or loss ``def` `profitLoss(N, M): ``    ``if` `(N ``=``=` `M): ``        ``print``(``"No Profit nor Loss"``) ``    ``else``: ``        ``result ``=` `0.0`` ` `        ``result ``=` `float``(``abs``(N ``-` `M)) ``/` `M `` ` `        ``if` `(N ``-` `M < ``0``): ``            ``print``(``"Loss = -"``,``'{0:.6}'` `.  ``                   ``format``(result ``*` `100``), ``"%"``) ``        ``else``: ``            ``print``(``"Profit = "``,``'{0:.6}'` `.  ``                   ``format``(result ``*` `100``), ``"%"``) `` ` `# Driver Code ``if` `__name__ ``=``=` `'__main__'``: ``    ``N ``=` `8``    ``M ``=` `9`` ` `    ``profitLoss(N, M) `

Output:Â
`Loss = -11.1111%`

Time Complexity: O(1)

Auxiliary Space: O(1)
