G = Profit/Selling Price.

Mark up Percentage: Profit divided by the Cost of making the Product

Gross Profit: The difference between the selling price and the cost of the product
P = Selling Price/Cost

Example 1:
  • We sell chairs for $250.
  • Each chair costs $200.
  • Gross Profit: Revenue - cost => $250 - $200 = $50
  • To find the margin, divide gross profit by the revenue.
  • $50/$250 =0.2 margin
  • To get a percentage mulitple by 100 : 0.2 X 100 = 20%
  • Margin is 20%, which means we keep 20% of our total revenue. The remaining 80% of revenue is spent on building the chairs.

Gross Margin Definition: Is the difference between revenue and the Cost Of goods sold divided by revenue.
