Enter the material cost ($), the labor cost per hour ($/hr), and the total hours needed for job (hr) into the Job Cost Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Job Cost.

## Job Cost Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Job Cost.

**JC = MC + L * T**

- Where JC is the Job Cost ($)
- MC is the material cost ($)
- L is the labor cost per hour ($/hr)
- T is the total hours needed for job (hr)

## How to Calculate Job Cost?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Job Cost.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the material cost ($). The material cost ($) is given as 130 .
- Next, determine the labor cost per hour ($/hr). The labor cost per hour ($/hr) is calculated as 30 .
- Next, determine the total hours needed for job (hr). The total hours needed for job (hr) is found to be 50.
- Finally, calculate the Job Cost using the formula above:

JC = MC + L * T

Inserting the values from above yields:

JC = 130 + 30 * 50 = 1630 ($)

**Example Problem #2**

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

material cost ($) = 600

labor cost per hour ($/hr) = 30

total hours needed for job (hr) = 50

Entering these values and solving gives:

JC = 600 + 30 * 50 = 2100** **($)
