When marginal cost is less than average variable or average total cost, AVC or ATC must be decreasing.

### How do you solve a profit and loss problem?

Now let us learn some tricks or formulas to solve maths problems based on gain and loss, starting from the general formulas.

- Profit, P = SP – CP; SP>CP.
- Loss, L = CP – SP; CP>SP.
- P% = (P/CP) x 100.
- L% = (L/CP) x 100.
- SP = {(100 + P%)/100} x CP.
- SP = {(100 – L%)/100} x CP.
- CP = {100/(100 + P%)} x SP.
- CP = {100/(100 – L%)} x SP.
