Enter the total area of the mural and the rate per square foot, along with the cost of supplies into the calculator to determine the total cost of the mural.

## Mural Cost Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the cost of a mural.

MC = A * R + S

Variables:

- MC is the total cost of the mural ($) A is the total area of the mural in square feet (sq ft) R is the rate per square foot ($) S is the cost of supplies needed for the mural ($)

To calculate the cost of a mural, multiply the total area of the mural by the rate per square foot. Then, add the cost of the supplies needed for the mural. The result is the total cost of the mural.

## What is a Mural Cost?

A mural cost refers to the total amount of money required to create a mural, a large painting or artwork applied directly on a wall, ceiling, or other large permanent surfaces. This cost typically includes the artist’s labor, materials used such as paints and brushes, the size and complexity of the mural, and sometimes additional expenses like travel, accommodation, and wall preparation. The cost can vary greatly depending on these factors.

## How to Calculate Mural Cost?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Mural Cost:

- First, determine the total area of the mural in square feet (A).
- Next, determine the rate per square foot (R).
- Next, determine the cost of supplies needed for the mural (S).
- Next, gather the formula from above = MC = A * R + S.
- Finally, calculate the Mural Cost (MC).
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total area of the mural (A) = 100 sq ft

rate per square foot (R) = $10

cost of supplies needed for the mural (S) = $500
