You first need to express both monitory values in the same units. I'm going to use dollars. Thus the problem becomes
The profit on this sale is $\$2  \$0.75 = \$1.25.$ Profit is usually expressed as a percentage of the selling price which in your case is $\$2.$ Hence the profit as a percentage of the selling price is \[\frac{\$1.25}{\$2} \times 100 = 62.5\%.\] I hope this helps,
