- 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:**

- First, determine the total costs ($) . In this example, the total costs ($) is given as 2000.
- Next, determine the total revenue ($). For this problem, the total revenue ($) is given as 5000.
- 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 ($)
