Enter the original cost ($) and the distortion rate (%) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Cost Distortion.

## Cost Distortion Formula

CDIS = OC - OC * C/100

Variables:

- CDIS is the Cost Distortion ($)
- OC is the original cost ($)
- C is the distortion rate (%)

To calculate the Cost Distortion, multiply the original cost by the distortion rate, then subtract the result from the original cost.

## How to Calculate Cost Distortion?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Cost Distortion.

- First, determine the original cost ($).
- Next, determine the distortion rate (%).
- Next, gather the formula from above = CDIS = OC – OC * C/100.
- Finally, calculate the Cost Distortion.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

original cost ($) = 5000

distortion rate (%) = 5
