# Margin vs Markup Tables

## Margin vs Markup tables

The margin vs markup tables below act as a quick reference to help you calculate markup and cost multiplier values from a known margin. The tables are based on the margin vs markup formula as follows:

Markup = Margin / (1 – Margin)

## How to Calculate Markup

As an example of using the margin vs markup tables, suppose a business has a product which has a margin of 20%. using the table it can see that the corresponding markup is 25% and the cost multiplier is 1.25.

So if the selling price, say 90 is known, the profit would be calculated using the margin
Profit = 20% x 90 = 18

If the cost price of 72 is known, then the profit would be calculated using the markup
Profit = 25% x 72 = 18 as before.

The multiplier of 1.25 can be applied to the cost price to give a corresponding selling price. In this example the selling price would be 1.25 x 72 = 90

Our tutorial on markup vs margin gives full details about how to convert from markup to margin and the use of the cost multiplier.
