To calculate the margin, take the subtotal price and remove the unit costs. Then, take that number and divide by the subtotal price again to get your margin. Here’s how to calculate your margin based on your desired profit:
Unit Cost: $1,500
Desired Profit: $750
Desired Total Revenue: Unit Cost ($1,500) + Desired Profit ($750) = $2,250
Desired Profit ($750) / Desired Total Revenue ($2,250) = 0.333
0.3333 * 100 = 33.3%
