P&L; is one of those topics where you can always save a lot of time (to be used in other questions)....

it's perhaps one of the easiest of the topics to cover..... I'm a 100 percentiler in quant and have made a few videos.... you can use them..... don't use them for any commercial purposes (it's a request) and of course you can pass on the word if you like....

Since I'm in middle of my preparations for civils, I haven't made videos on all the topics, yet there are enough to get the basics right.....

I'm posting the one on P&L; - (excuse me for my handwriting 😛 )

Profit and loss is the branch of basic mathematics which deals with the study of profit and loss made in a business transaction.Profit and loss is mainly used in finance and business transactions.Some important profit and loss formulas are :Notations used in profit and loss:S.P. Selling priceC.P. Cost priceM.P. Marked PriceProfit and Loss Formulas:1. Profit or Gain = S.P. C.P. [ profit is made only when S.P. is greater then C.P.]2. Loss = C.P S.P. [ Loss id made only when C.P. is greater than S.P.]3. Profit % = (Actual Profit C.P. ) 100%4. Loss % = (Actual loss C.P. ) 100%5. C.P. = (S.P. 100 ) (100 + profit%) [If profit is made]6. C.P. = (S.P. 100 ) (100 profit%) [If loss is made]7. S.P. = (100 + profit%) C.P 100 [If profit is made]8. S.P. = (100 loss%) C.P 100 [If loss is made]9. Actual Discount = M.P. S.P.10. Discount% = (Actual Discount M.P.) 100%11. S.P. = M.P. Actual Discount12. S.P. = M.P. Discount% of M.P.13. S.P. = (100 Discount%) of M.P.

Are there any shortcut methods to solve questions like If the principal is 22000, the rate of compounded interest is 12%. what would be the amount after 4 years if the interest is calculated quaterly???

(i do it by long method bt it takes a lot of tm)
