Normal 2-3 foot embedment 4x4 or 2" steel fence post - unless in bedrock or such, probably about $50-150 by fence company or handyman, depending on length, treated or not and cedar or not, concreted in or not, and if new one to be concreted in or not. About $100-200 if gate pivot post.

DIY solution - Large box stores like HD and Lowes have splice brackets for about $10 - oversleeve sized piping for round chain link type posts where you cut off the damaged post, drive splicer down a foot using a wood block and sledge (to avoid dinging the top) then slip cut off top of post or new post into it. Come in both oversleeve (stronger) and inn er sleeve (for posts surrounded by concrete). For wood posts, Simpson makes splicing brackets you cut off broken post, dig down about a foot to install the bracket, then cut broken off top square to length and install, or put new piece of wood in top. Google this search phrase for the wood splice brackets - Simpson 4x4 splicing bracket
