Enter the objective after activity and the objective before activity into the Return on Objective Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Return on Objective. 

Return on Objective Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Return on Objective. 

ROO = (OA – OB) / OB * 100

  • Where ROO is the Return on Objective (%)
  • OA is the objective after activity 
  • OB is the objective before activity 

How to Calculate Return on Objective?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Return on Objective.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the objective after activity. 
    • The objective after activity is given as: 40.
  2. Next, determine the objective before activity. 
    • The objective before activity is provided as: 20.
  3. Finally, calculate the Return on Objective using the equation above: 

ROO = (OA – OB) / OB * 100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

ROO = (40 – 20) / 20 * 100 = 100.00 (%)

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

objective after activity = 50

objective before activity = 30

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. 

ROO = (OA – OB) / OB * 100 = ?
