Enter the profit amount ($) and the cost amount ($) into the Percentage of Cost Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Percentage of Cost.

## Percentage of Cost Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Percentage of Cost.

POC = P / C * 100

- Where POC is the Percentage of Cost (%)
- P is the profit amount ($)
- C is the cost amount ($)

To calculate the percentage of cost, divide the profit amount by the cost, then multiply by 100.

## How to Calculate Percentage of Cost?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Percentage of Cost.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the profit amount ($). The profit amount ($) is given as 150.
- Next, determine the cost amount ($). The cost amount ($) is provided as 200.
- Finally, calculate the Percentage of Cost using the equation above:

POC = P / C * 100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

POC = 150 / 200 * 100 = 75 (%)

Example Problem #2:** **

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

profit amount ($) = 16

cost amount ($) = 20

Entering these values and solving gives:

POC = 16 / 20 * 100 = 80 (%)
