How to Calculate Equity Margin?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Equity Margin.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the margin percent (%). 
    • The margin percent (%) is given as: 20.
  2. Next, determine the total equity ($). 
    • The total equity ($) is provided as: 100,000.
  3. Finally, calculate the Equity Margin using the equation above: 

EM = MP/100 * TE

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

EM = 20/100 * 100,000 = 20,000.00 ($)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

margin percent (%) = 600,000

total equity ($) = 30
