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 ($)
