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 ($)
