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**

- First, determine the price per bag of popcorn sold ($). In this example, the price per bag of popcorn sold ($) is given as 1.5 .
- Next, determine the number of bags sold. For this problem, the number of bags sold is given as 250 .
- Next, determine the cost of the kernels ($). In this case, the cost of the kernels ($) is found to be 125.
- 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** **($)
