## Variable Margin Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Variable Margin.

**VM = (UR – VC) / UR * 100**

- Where VM is the Variable Margin (%)
- UR is the unit revenue ($)
- VC is the variable costs ($)

## How to Calculate Variable Margin?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Variable Margin.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the unit revenue ($).
- The unit revenue ($) is given as: 147.

- Next, determine the variable costs ($).
- The variable costs ($) is provided as: 30.

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

VM = (UR – VC) / UR * 100

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

VM = (147 – 30) / 147 * 100 = 79.59 (%)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

unit revenue ($) = 80

variable costs ($) = 30

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

VM = (UR – VC) / UR * 100** = ?**
