## Vending Machine Profit Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Vending Machine Profit.

**Pv = AP * Q – RC**

- Where Pv is the Vending Machine Profit ($/month)
- AP is the average price per item sold ($/item)
- Q is the average number of items sold per month
- RC is the vending machine rental cost ($/month)

## How to Calculate Vending Machine Profit?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Vending Machine Profit.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the average price per item sold ($/item). In this example, the average price per item sold ($/item) is given as 2.5 .
- Next, determine the average number of items sold per month. For this problem, the average number of items sold per month is given as 300.
- Next, determine the vending machine rental cost ($/month). In this case, the vending machine rental cost ($/month) is found to be 200.
- Finally, calculate the Vending Machine Profit using the formula above:

Pv = AP * Q – RC

Inserting the values from above yields:

Pv = 2.5 * 300 – 200 = 550.00 ($/month)

**Example Problem #2**

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

average price per item sold ($/item) = 1.5

average number of items sold per month = 400

vending machine rental cost ($/month) = 300

Entering these values and solving gives:

Pv = 1.5 * 400 – 300 = 300** **($/month)
