How to Calculate Unit Price
The unit price can be found using a simple formula if the quantity and total cost is known. Simply divide the total price by the quantity to find the unit price.
The formula for calculating unit price is:
unit price = total price ÷ quantity
Thus the unit price is equal to the total price divided by the quantity.
How to Calculate Unit Price for Different Units of Measure
In some cases, the quantity may be measured in a different unit than the unit price; for instance, if the total quantity is measured in pounds but the unit price is measured in ounces.
To calculate the unit price, first convert the total quantity to the desired unit. Thus, if the quantity is measured in ounces but you want to find the unit price in pounds, convert the quantity to pounds first, then calculate unit price using the formula above.
Our unit conversion utilities make this simple.
For example, let’s find the unit price per pound for a quantity of 32 ounces at a price of $6.38.
Start by converting 32 ounces to pounds.
32 oz ÷ 16 = 2 lbs
Next, calculate the unit price using the formula above.
unit price = $6.38 ÷ 2 lbs
unit price = $3.19 per lb
Thus the unit price is $3.19 per pound in this example.
