How do you calculate profit or loss percent

Profit and loss both have the same formula. Profit is positive and loss is negative. I'll use the symbol "N" (for "net", as in "net profit" or "net loss") to denote that quantity.

N = Revenue - Costs

You may need to solve some equations for both the Revenue and Costs terms. If you need a percent, then do:

(N/Revenue) * 100%.

...which gives you the percent excess (or deficit) revenue.
