## Q. How do you calculate contribution percentage?

## Q. How do you find total sales from contribution margin?

Since you have the contribution margin ratio, you must identify the variable cost ratio and use that figure to determine the total sales. To do so, subtract the contribution margin ratio from 100 to determine the variable cost ratio, and then divide the variable cost amount by that percentage.

## Q. What is contribution to sales ratio?

## Q. Is it better to have a high contribution margin?

The closer a contribution margin percent, or ratio, is to 100%, the better. The higher the ratio, the more money is available to cover the business’s overhead expenses, or fixed costs. Eliminating low contribution margin products can positively impact a company’s overall contribution margin.
