Enter the total costs ($) and the total revenue ($) into the calculator to determine the Profit From Cost.

## Profit From Cost Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Profit From Cost.

P  = R - C
• Where P is the Profit From Cost ($) • R is the total revenue ($)
• C is the total costs ($) To calculate profit from cost, subtract the costs from the revenue. ## How to Calculate Profit From Cost? The following example problems outline how to calculate Profit From Cost. Example Problem #1: 1. First, determine the total costs ($) . In this example, the total costs ($) is given as 2000. 2. Next, determine the total revenue ($). For this problem, the total revenue ($) is given as 5000. 3. Finally, calculate the Profit From Cost using the equation above: P = R – C The values given above are inserted into the equation below: P = 5000 – 2000 = 3000 ($)

Example Problem #2:

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total costs ($) = 500 total revenue ($) = 3000

Entering these values and solving gives:

P  = 3000 – 500 = 2500 (\$)
