## 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 Example:**

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%
