Enter the total cost of the package and the number of diapers in the package into the calculator to determine the cost per diaper.

Cost Per Diaper Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Cost Per Diaper.

CPD = CP / D
  • Where CPD is the cost per diaper ($/diaper)
  • CP is the cost of the package of diapers
  • #D is the number of diapers in the package

To calculate the cost per diaper, divide the cost of the package, including tax, by the number of diapers in the pack.

How to Calculate Cost Per Diaper?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate Cost Per Diaper.

First, determine the cost of the pack of diapers. In this example, the cost is $25.00.

Next, determine the number of diaper in the pack. There are 100 diapers in this pack.

Finally, calculate the cost per diaper using the formula above:

CPD = CP / #D

CPD = $25.00 / 100

CPD = $.25 / diaper
