Loss on buffalo = 10, 000 * 12/100 = 1,200
Gain on Cow = 7, 500 * 20/100 = 1, 500
Gain total = 1, 500 - 1,200 = 300
total gain % = 300 / (10,000+7,500) * 100 =     300/175 %

SP = CP * (100 + gain%) /100 ,
CP = 900 * 100 / 120
Gain = SP - CP

SP = (100 - loss%) * CP  / 100
CP = 45 *100/80
new SP = CP ( 100 + profit%) / 100 , profit % = 20%
calculate

CP = 132 * 100 / 120 = ...
