## How to Calculate Cost Per Quantity?

Example Problem:

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

First, determine the cost of the lot. In this example, the cost is calculated to be $1,000.00.

Next, determine the quantity. This lot has a total quantity of 400 items.

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

CPQ = TC / TQ

CPQ = $1000.00/400

CPQ = $2.5 / quantity
