## Average Cost Calculator Formula

The average cost can be calculated using the following formula:

Total Cost = (Cost per unit * Quantity) - Discount Amount + Tax Amount

Average Cost per Unit = Total Cost / Quantity

This formula considers the cost per unit, quantity, discount, and tax to determine the average cost per unit and the overall total cost.

## Illustrative Example

Let's consider an example to illustrate the usage of the Average Cost Calculator. Suppose we have a product called Widget with the following details:

• Name: Widget
• Cost per unit: \$10.00
• Quantity: 50
• Discount: 20%
• Tax: 8%

Using the provided values in the calculator, we can calculate the average cost as follows:

• Name: Widget
• Cost per unit: \$10.00
• Quantity: 50
• Discount: 20%
• Tax: 8%

Substituting these values into the formula, we get:

Total Cost = (\$10.00 * 50) - (20% of (\$10.00 * 50)) + (8% of (\$10.00 * 50))

Calculating further:

Total Cost = (\$10.00 * 50) - (\$10.00 * 50 * 0.20) + (\$10.00 * 50 * 0.08)

Total Cost = \$500 - \$100 + \$40

Therefore, the total cost is \$440.

To calculate the average cost per unit, we divide the total cost by the quantity:

Average Cost per Unit = \$440 / 50

Calculating further:

Average Cost per Unit = \$8.80

Therefore, the average cost per unit is \$8.80.
