Enter the cost per page ($/page), the number of pages, and the required margin on sale (%) into the Book Price Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Book Price.

## Book Price Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Book Price.

BP = (CPP * P) / (1-RM/100)

- Where BP is the Book Price ($)
- CPP is the cost per page ($/page)
- #P is the number of pages
- RM is the required margin on sale (%)

## How to Calculate Book Price?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Book Price.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the cost per page ($/page).
- The cost per page ($/page) is given as .05.

- Next, determine the number of pages.
- The number of pages is calculated as: 1200.

- Next, determine the required margin on sale (%).
- The required margin on sale (%) is found to be: 5.

- Finally, calculate the Book Price using the formula above:

BP = (CPP * #P) / (1-RM/100)

Inserting the values from above yields:

BP = (.05 * 1200) / (1-5/100) = 63.15 ($)

**Example Problem #2**

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

cost per page ($/page) = .35

number of pages = 1500

required margin on sale (%) = 50

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer.
