## How to Find Percentage Loss?

Percentage loss is defined as the change in percentage in which something loses its value and that can be calculated using the formula:

**loss = cost price(CP) - selling price(SP) ** [Note: sp < cp]

**Loss(%) = (loss / CP) × 100**

**Solved Examples on Percentage Loss Calculator**

**Example 1:**

Find loss percentage if the cost price of a bottle is $720 but the selling price of a bottle 600?

**Solution:**

Given:

Cost price(CP) = $720

Selling price(SP) = $600

Loss = cost price(CP) - selling price(SP)

Loss = 720 - 600

Loss = 120

Loss(%) = (loss / CP) × 100

= (120 / 720) × 100

= 1/6 × 100

= 16.666%

Therefore, percentage loss = 16.666%

**Example 2:**

Find loss percentage if the cost price of a bottle is $1100 but the selling price of a bottle 500?

**Solution:**

Given:

Cost price(CP) = $1100

Selling price(SP) = $500

Loss = cost price(CP) - selling price(SP)

Loss = 1100 - 500

Loss = 600

Loss(%) = (loss / CP) × 100

= (600 / 1100) × 100

= 1/6 × 100

= 54.5454%

Therefore, percentage loss = 54.5454%

**Example 3:**

Find loss percentage if the cost price of a bottle is $800 but the selling price of a bottle 600?

**Solution:**

Given:

Cost price(CP) = $800

Selling price(SP) = $600

Loss = cost price(CP) - selling price(SP)

Loss = 800 - 600

Loss = 200

Loss(%) = (loss / CP) × 100

= (200 / 800) × 100

= 1/4 × 100

= 25%

Therefore, percentage loss = 25%
