Q13. Gross profit
Entity A sold 200 units of merchandise in cash at a selling price of $50 per unit. Entity A purchased merchandise at $40 per unit before.
What is the amount of gross profit from this sale?
A13. Gross profit is measured by subtracting the cost of goods sold from sales revenue.
(1) To record sales revenue
Sales revenue = 200 units x $50 = $10,000
(2) To record the cost of goods sold
|Cost of goods sold||8,000|
Cost of goods sold = 200 units x $40 = $8,000
(3) Gross profit = Sales revenue – Cost of goods sold
= $10,000 – $8,000 = $2,000
(4) Gross profit ratio = Gross profit / Sales revenue
= $2,000 / $10,000 = 0.20 = 20%
