Enter the total margin profit ($) and the total costs ($) into the Percent Margin Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Percent Margin.

## Percent Margin Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Percent Margin.

PM = MP / TC * 100

- Where PM is the Percent Margin (%)
- MP is the total margin profit ($)
- TC is the total costs ($)

To calculate the percent margin, divide the margin profit by the costs, then multiply by 100.

## How to Calculate Percent Margin?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Percent Margin.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total margin profit ($).
- The total margin profit ($) is given as: 56.

- Next, determine the total costs ($).
