Enter the surplus value ($) and the capital invested ($) into the calculator to determine the Rate of Profit.

## Rate of Profit Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Rate of Profit.

ROP = SV / CI
• Where ROP  is the Rate of Profit
• SV is the surplus value ($) • CI is the capital invested ($)

## How to Calculate Rate of Profit?

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

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the surplus value ($). In this example, the surplus value ($) is given as 1000.
2. Next, determine the capital invested ($). For this problem, the capital invested ($) is given as 3000.
3. 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
