**Given:**

SP1 = Rs.8579 SP2 = Rs.6341

**Formulas used:**

Profit = Selling price - Cost price

Loss = Cost price - Selling price

Profit percent = Profit/Cost price × 100

**Calculation:**

Let the profit be = Rs.x

**According to the question:**

CP1 = CP2

Rs.8579 - x = x + Rs.6341

⇒ 8579 - 6341 = 2x ⇒ 2238/2 = x ⇒ Profit = Rs.1119

Now, Cost price = 8579 - 1119 = Rs.7460

Profit percent = 1119/7460 × 100

**∴ The required profit percent = 15%**When profit or loss are equal:

Shortcut Trick

Cost price = (SP1 + SP2)/2

⇒ (Rs.8579 + Rs.6341)/2 = Rs.7460

Loss = Rs.7460 - Rs.6341 = Rs.1119

**Profit % = 1119/7460 × 100 = 15%**
