Enter the total weight of concrete needed (lbs) and the cost per pound of concrete ($/lb) into the Concrete Cost Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Concrete Cost. 

Concrete Cost Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Concrete Cost. 

CC = WCC * CPP

  • Where CC is the Concrete Cost ($)
  • WCC is the total weight of concrete needed (lbs) 
  • CPP is the cost per pound of concrete ($/lb) 

How to Calculate Concrete Cost?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Concrete Cost.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total weight of concrete needed (lbs). The total weight of concrete needed (lbs) is given as 1,000.
  2. Next, determine the cost per pound of concrete ($/lb). The cost per pound of concrete ($/lb) is provided as 3.00.
  3. Finally, calculate the Concrete Cost using the equation above: 

CC = WCC * CPP

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

CC =1000 * 3.00 = 3,000.00 ($)


Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total weight of concrete needed (lbs) = 2,000

cost per pound of concrete ($/lb) = 2.50

Entering these values and solving gives:

CC = WCC * CPP = 5,000.00 ($)
