To calculate the operating ratio, divide the operating expenses by the total sales.

## How to Calculate Operating Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Operating Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the operating expenses ($). • The operating expenses ($) is given as: 300.
2. Next, determine the sales ($). • The sales ($) is provided as: 1000.
3. Finally, calculate the Operating Ratio using the equation above:
