The profit that a person makes on selling 9 apples is equal to the cost of 2 apples. What is the percentage of profit? Solution: 9*SP  9*CP = 2*CP 9*SP = 11*CP SP/CP = 11/9 Profit% = 2/9 = 22.22% Question didn't mentioned about 9CP. so why 9CP is written?

The question mentioned "profit", which (per apple) is SP  CP. The profit on selling 9 apples is therefore 9(SP  CP) = 9SP  9CP.
