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 ($) • TS is the total sales during the period ($)

## How to Calculate Wages to Sales Ratio?

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

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total cost of wages ($). 1. The total cost of wages ($) is given as: 1500.
2. Next, determine the total sales during the period ($). 1. The total sales during the period ($) is provided as: 3000.
3. 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
