• Where SC is the Selling Cost ($) • TC is the total cost ($)
• PM is the profit margin ($) To calculate the selling cost, sum the total cost and the profit margin together. ## How to Calculate Selling Cost? The following example problems outline how to calculate Selling Cost. Example Problem #1: 1. First, determine the total cost ($). The total cost ($) is given as 40. 2. Next, determine the profit margin ($). The profit margin ($) is provided as 20. 3. Finally, calculate the Selling Cost using the equation above: SC = TC + PM The values given above are inserted into the equation below: SC = 40 + 20 = 60 ($)

Example Problem #2:

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total cost ($) = 35 profit margin ($) = 7

Entering these values and solving gives:

SC = TC + PM = 42 (\$)
