# C program to calculate profit or loss

Write a C program to input cost price and selling price of a product and check profit or loss. Also calculate total profit or loss using if else. How to calculate profit or loss on any product using if else in C programming. Program to calculate profit and loss of any product in C.

Example
Input

```Input cost price: 1000
Input selling price: 1500```

Output

`Profit: 500`

## Logic to find profit or loss

In primary mathematics classes, you all have learned about profit and loss. If cost price is greater than selling price then there is a loss otherwise profit.

Formula to calculate profit and loss
`Profit = S.P - C.P` (Where S.P is Selling Price and C.P is Cost Price)
`Loss = C.P - S.P`

After quick recap of profit and loss let us code solution for the program.

## Program to calculate profit or loss

``````/**
* C program to calculate profit or loss
*/

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
int cp,sp, amt;

/* Input cost price and selling price of a product */
printf("Enter cost price: ");
scanf("%d", &cp);
printf("Enter selling price: ");
scanf("%d", &sp);

if(sp > cp)
{
/* Calculate Profit */
amt = sp - cp;
printf("Profit = %d", amt);
}
else if(cp > sp)
{
/* Calculate Loss */
amt = cp - sp;
printf("Loss = %d", amt);
}
else
{
/* Neither profit nor loss */
printf("No Profit No Loss.");
}

return 0;
}``````

Output

```Enter cost price: 1000
Enter selling price: 1500
Profit = 500```
