To determine the percentage of profit:

The cost price = $405 (given).

Sold price = $ 615 (given).

This sale gives a profit as the selling price is higher than the cost price.

Therefore the amount of profit = selling price - cost price = $(615-405) = $210.

Therefore the percentage of profit = (amount of profit/cost pice)100 = (210/405)100 = 21000/405 = 1400/27 = 51.85%.

Therefore , the percentage of profit in this sale is 51.85%.
