  • Where SALR is the Sales Ratio (%)
  • CS is the total cost of sales ($) 
  • VS is the total value of sales ($) 

How to Calculate Sales Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Sales Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total cost of sales ($). 
    • The total cost of sales ($) is given as: 1,500.
  2. Next, determine the total value of sales ($). 
    • The total value of sales ($) is provided as: 3,000.
  3. Finally, calculate the Sales Ratio using the equation above: 

SALR = CS / VS * 100

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

SALR = 1,500 / 3,000 * 100 = 50.00 (%)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total cost of sales ($) = 6,000

total value of sales ($) = 15,000
