## What is loss?

It is the loss of money from commercial transactions.

## What is the loss rate?

It is the ratio of the absolute value of the difference between the revenue amount and the cost amount from the sale of a good or service to the cost amount.

## How is the loss calculated?

Loss amount is obtained by subtracting the income amount from the cost amount. For example, if the purchase price of a good with a purchase price of USD 500 is USD 400, the loss arising from this sale will be calculated as 500 - 400 = USD 100.

## How to calculate loss percentage?

It is calculated by subtracting the amount of revenue (or sales price) from the cost amount and dividing the cost amount by multiplying by 100. For example, if the purchase price of a good with a purchase price of USD 500 is USD 400, the loss rate from this sale is calculated as (500 - 400) x 100/500 = 20 (ie 20%).

## How is the sale price calculated?

The sales price is obtained by subtracting the amount obtained by multiplying the cost amount by the loss rate and dividing it by 100. For example, if you want to sell a product with a purchase price of USD 500 with a 20% loss, the selling price will be calculated as 500 - (500 x 20/100) = USD 400.
