Enter the total sales ($) and the total costs associated with sales ($) into the Sales Margin Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Sales Margin.

## Sales Margin Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Sales Margin.

**SM = (TS-TCS) / TS * 100**

- Where SM is the Sales Margin (%)
- TS is the total sales ($)
- TCS is the total costs associated with sales ($)

## How to Calculate Sales Margin?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Sales Margin.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total sales ($).
- The total sales ($) is given as: 680.

- Next, determine the total costs associated with sales ($).
- The total costs associated with sales ($) is provided as: 300.

- Finally, calculate the Sales Margin using the equation above:

SM = (TS-TCS) / TS * 100

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

SM = (680-300) / 680 * 100 = 55.88 (%)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total sales ($) = 700

total costs associated with sales ($) = 400

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.

SM = (TS-TCS) / TS * 100** = ?**
