Enter the book price ($), the number of books sold, and the selling fees and costs per book ($) into the calculator to determine the Book Profit. 

Book Profit Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Book Profit. 

P = (BP-SF) * QB

  • Where P is the Book Profit ($)
  • BP is the book price ($) 
  • QB is the number of books sold 
  • SF is the selling fees and costs per book ($) 

How to Calculate Book Profit?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Book Profit.

Example Problem #1

  1. First, determine the book price ($). In this example, the book price ($) is given as 150 .
  2. Next, determine the number of books sold. For this problem, the number of books sold is given as  20 .
  3. Next, determine the selling fees and costs per book ($). In this case, the selling fees and costs per book ($) is found to be 30.
  4. Finally, calculate the Book Profit using the formula above: 

P = (BP-SF) * QB

Inserting the values from above yields: 

P = (150-30) * 20 = 2400 ($)


Example Problem #2

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

book price ($) = 200

number of books sold = 15

selling fees and costs per book ($) = 60

Entering these values and solving gives:

P = (200-60) * 15 = 2100 ($)
