## How to Calculate Gross Margin?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Gross Margin.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the revenue ($).
- The revenue ($) is given as: 400.

- Next, determine the cost of goods sold ($).
- The cost of goods sold ($) is provided as: 300.

- Finally, calculate the Gross Margin using the equation above:

GM = (R – C) / R

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

GM = (400 – 300) / 400 = .25

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

revenue ($) = 500

cost of goods sold ($) = 100
