Enter the total sale price per hot dog (\$), the total cost per hot dog (\$), and the total number of hot dogs sold (\$) into the calculator to determine the Hot Dog Stand Profit.

## Hot Dog Stand Profit Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Hot Dog Stand Profit.

Phd = (SPD – CPD) * Q

• Where Phd is the Hot Dog Stand Profit (\$)
• SPD is the total sale price per hot dog (\$)
• CPD is the total cost per hot dog (\$)
• Q is the total number of hot dogs sold (\$)

## How to Calculate Hot Dog Stand Profit?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Hot Dog Stand Profit.

Example Problem #1

1. First, determine the total sale price per hot dog (\$). In this example, the total sale price per hot dog (\$) is given as 1.5 .
2. Next, determine the total cost per hot dog (\$). For this problem, the total cost per hot dog (\$) is given as  .75 .
3. Next, determine the total number of hot dogs sold (\$). In this case, the total number of hot dogs sold (\$) is found to be 1000.
4. Finally, calculate the Hot Dog Stand Profit using the formula above:

Phd = (SPD – CPD) * Q

Inserting the values from above yields:

Phd = (1.5 – .75) * 1000 = 750.00 (\$)

Example Problem #2

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total sale price per hot dog (\$) = 2

total cost per hot dog (\$) = .50

total number of hot dogs sold (\$) = 2000

Entering these values and solving gives:

Phd = (2 – .5) * 2000 = 3,000.00 (\$)
