When a store claculates its profit as a percentage of its cost price the profit is always bigger than the profit calculated as a percentage of the selling price.

What does it mean and please give me an example.

Thank you :)

selling price: $15

profit: $5

profit/cost = 5/10 = 50%

profit/sellprice = 5/15 = 33%

assuming s > c

ps > pc

divide by sc:

p/c > p/s
