• Where RS is the Required Sales (\$)
• RP is the required profit (\$)
• TC is the total costs (\$)

## How to Calculate Required Sales?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Required Sales.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the required profit (\$).
1. The required profit (\$) is given as: 100.
2. Next, determine the total costs (\$).
1. The total costs (\$) is provided as: 30.
3. Finally, calculate the Required Sales using the equation above:

RS = RP – TC

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

RS = 100 – 30 = 70.00 (\$)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

required profit (\$) = 4902
