### I am trying to figure out how to use the Cost, Sell, and margin buttons on this calculator...any insight?

I haven't used a calculator with these functions, so let's do a test.

I'm guessing is it for doing basic accounting. The equation is Sales - Costs = Gross Profit and maybe Gross Profit / Sales = Gross Margin.

If we enter 100 in sell, 40 in cost, does the margin come out to be 60 or 0.6? If it comes out to 60, the margin is the Gross Profit. If it comes out to 0.6, then the margin is Gross Margin.

Good luck,

Paul

### I must not understand what a margin is so could someone explain, the instructions give this example: If I purchase something for \$2000 and want to make a 20% profit I would need to sell it for \$2500 (2000...

Hi,
I think you should refer to you definitions. The 20% is called the markup. The profit margin is calculated with respect to the revenue. So you should divide the 400\$ by 2400\$ to get a net profit margin of 400/2400 =0.1667 or 16.67% (And we are not taking into account the taxes).

Margin = Markup /(price + Markup)
Markup = Margin* (Price +Markup)
Markup = Margin*Markup + Margin* Price
Markup*(1-Margin) =Margin*Price
Markup = Margin*Price/( 1-Margin)
For Price =2000, Margin =0.2 (that is 20%)
Markup = 0.2*2000(1-0.8) =0.2*2000/0.8
Markup = 2000*(0.2/0.8)= 2000*0.25 = 500

Thus to have a (net) profit margin of 20%, an item costing 2000\$ must be marked up by 500\$.

Try not to reason with numbers. Write the defining relation and use algebra to isolate for the variable you seek.

Hope it helps.

### How do I use the Cost/Sell/Margin function on my Canon P100-DH 2 desktop printing calculator? Please for the love of god help me.

Cost/Sell / Margin can be very confusing it uses the following Account formulas (For Cost = Selling price - ( Selling price / Markup) For Sell = Selling Price =Cost / (1-Margin%))

It is not a pure percentage. Please respond back if you have any other questions.

### Instructions on How To Use a Calculator

Ok I looked for ages for how these keys work and once you knwo how it is quite simple.

say something costs 100, enter 100 then press the cost button
say you want a margin of 25% then enter 25% and press the mgn button the result is the selling price 133.33

So to reverse it enter 133.33 press the sell button
Enter 25% and press the mgn button
result is 99.99 cost price (100) bar a cent/penny

and finally to work out margin

enter 100 press cost button
enter 133.33 press sell button
result is 24.99 which is the percentage margin

Simple isn't it
