A merchant made a profit of ₹ 275 on the sale price of a sweater that cost the merchant ₹ 1225.
A. The profit expressed as a percentage of the sale cost to the merchant
B. The profit expressed as a percentage of the sale price

Profit = 275

Selling price = cost + profit

S.P = 1225 + 275

S.P. = 1500
