Enter the total profit ($) and the total revenue ($) into the calculator to determine the Percent Profit. 

Percent Profit Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Percent Profit. 

PP = TP / TR * 100

  • Where PP is the Percent Profit (%)
  • TP is the total profit ($) 
    • Profit = revenue – costs
  • TR is the total revenue ($) 

How to Calculate Percent Profit?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Percent Profit.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total profit ($). In this example, the total profit ($) is given as 1000.
  2. Next, determine the total revenue ($). For this problem, the total revenue ($) is given as 2000.
  3. Finally, calculate the Percent Profit using the equation above: 

PP = TP / TR * 100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

PP = 1000 / 2000 * 100 = 50 (%)


Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total profit ($) = 3000

total revenue ($) = 4000

Entering these values and solving gives:

PP = 3000 / 4000 * 100 = 75 (%)
