If I understand the intent and details of the shortcut correctly…
You are asking for:
- A current selling price.
- A current profit margin (% not amount).
- A desired profit margin (%).
Then you are calculating the current profit
current profit = current profit margin x current selling price
Then from that you calculate the current wholesale cost.
wholesale cost = current list price - current profit
Then from that you are calculating what you should sell at to make the desired profit.
desired profit amount = wholesale cost x desired profit margin
revised selling price = wholesale cost + desired profit amount
That’s how it reads to me, and so it makes sense to me if that’s what you are trying to achieve.
Can you share an example set of input values and the output you get along with the output you would expect to get at each of the calculation stages outlined above?
Alternately if the above isn’t what you were trying to achieve, can you provide some details around what you were trying to achieve?
As an aside, I’d recommend sticking to a common set of terminology/naming conventions between your question in the input capture (Ask for Input), your variable names (I’d try and name all the parts too for a set of multiple calculations | variables & magic variables), and your output naming in the results (Show Result). It helps when trying to keep track of what is used where.
Hope that helps.
