Enter the total cost of wages ($) and the total sales during the period ($) into the Wages to Sales Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Wages to Sales Ratio.

## Wages to Sales Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Wages to Sales Ratio.

W-S = TW / TS

- Where W-S is the Wages to Sales Ratio ($/$)
- TW is the total cost of wages ($)
- TS is the total sales during the period ($)

To calculate the wages to sales ratio, divide the total wages by the total sales.

## How to Calculate Wages to Sales Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Wages to Sales Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total cost of wages ($).
- The total cost of wages ($) is given as: 1500.

- Next, determine the total sales during the period ($).
- The total sales during the period ($) is provided as: 3000.

- Finally, calculate the Wages to Sales Ratio using the equation above:

W-S = TW / TS

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

W-S =1500 / 3000 = .500 ($/$)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

total cost of wages ($) = 2000

total sales during the period ($) = 5000
