you can do this way...

store formula in sql table tblFormulas like below...
FormulaName  			FormulaEquation
Gain				S.P. - C.P.
Loss				C.P. - S.P.
Gain%				(GAIN * 100)/C.P.
Loss%			         (LOSS * 100)/S.P
Selling Price (S.P)                 ((100 + GAIN%)/100)*C.P.

Write down code in .net
replace values of parameters in equations...
for e.g.
string Equation = "((100 + GAIN%)/100)*C.P."; 
Equation = Equation.Replace("GAIN%", txtGainPer.text); // suppose txtGainPer.text = 50
Equation = Equation.Replace("C.P.", txtCP.text); // suppose txtGainPer.text = 27
Equation = Equation.Replace("S.P.", txtSP.text);
Equation = Equation.Replace("GAIN", txtGain.text);
Equation = Equation.Replace("LOSS", txtLoss.text);
//result will be like below... Equation = "((100 + 50)/100)*27";
//now send this equation to sql as below to evaluate
Equation = "Select " + Equation;
//then pass string to sql for execution...

NOTE : This code is vulnerable for sql injection
TIP: to avoid this you can use third party .net classes available for evaluate expressions OR can write code for evaluate expressions your self

Hope this helped you.
Happy Coding!

If I am not wrong; you want to store some sql in a field and execute it.

Check this it may help you.

Declare @a varchar(999)
set @a='select 5*5+5'
--You can use select @a=fieldname from tablename where criterya
Exec (@a)
