Enter the total number of items sold per month (items/month) and the total number of months in the period into the Sales Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Sales Volume. 

Sales Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Sales Volume. 

SV = IS * P

  • Where SV is the Sales Volume (items)
  • IS is the total number of items sold per month (items/month) 
  • P is the total number of months in the period 

How to Calculate Sales Volume?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Sales Volume.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total number of items sold per month (items/month). 
    1. The total number of items sold per month (items/month) is given as: 500.
  2. Next, determine the total number of months in the period. 
    1. The total number of months in the period is provided as: 4.
  3. Finally, calculate the Sales Volume using the equation above: 

SV = IS * P

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

SV = 500 * 4 = 2000 (items)


Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total number of items sold per month (items/month) = 600

total number of months in the period = 3

Entering these values and solving gives:

SV = IS * P = 1800 (items)
