Enter the price per bag of popcorn sold ($), the number of bags sold, and the cost of the kernels ($) into the calculator to determine the Popcorn Profit.

## Popcorn Profit Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Popcorn Profit.

PP = PB * B - C
• Where PP is the Popcorn Profit ($) • PB is the price per bag of popcorn sold ($)
• B is the number of bags sold
• C is the cost of the kernels ($) To calculate popcorn profit, multiply the price per bag by the number of bags sold, then subtract the cost of the kernels used. ## How to Calculate Popcorn Profit? The following example problems outline how to calculate Popcorn Profit. Example Problem #1 1. First, determine the price per bag of popcorn sold ($). In this example, the price per bag of popcorn sold ($) is given as 1.5 . 2. Next, determine the number of bags sold. For this problem, the number of bags sold is given as 250 . 3. Next, determine the cost of the kernels ($). In this case, the cost of the kernels ($) is found to be 125. 4. Finally, calculate the Popcorn Profit using the formula above: PP = PB * #S – C Inserting the values from above yields: PP = 1.5 * 250 – 125 = 250 ($)

Example Problem #2

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

price per bag of popcorn sold ($) = 1.00 number of bags sold = 50 cost of the kernels ($) = 25

Entering these values and solving gives:

PP = 1 *50 – 25 = 25 (\$)
