You have to enter two of the three factors: Cost, Selling Price, Margin. The unit will then provide the missing factor.

To calculate Cost:
Enter the Selling Price, press 'Sell' button
Enter Profit Margin, press 'Margin' button

Enter Selling Price, press 'Sell' button

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.

### 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.
