## How to Calculate Rate of Profit?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Rate of Profit.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the surplus value ($). In this example, the surplus value ($) is given as 1000.
- Next, determine the capital invested ($). For this problem, the capital invested ($) is given as 3000.
- Finally, calculate the Rate of Profit using the equation above:

ROP = SV / CI

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

ROP = 1000 / 3000 = .33

**Example Problem #2: **

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

surplus value ($) = 140

capital invested ($) = 200

Entering these values and solving gives:

ROP = 140 / 200 = .7
