**Question**:

**I need a formula to calculate the retail price of an item with a 55% gross margin. I have the Cost of Good Sold amount but can't figure out the formula that would give me the retail accounting for the COGS being 45% of retail price.**

**Answer:**

**The formula is actually pretty simple. Let's assume your cost of goods sold is in cell D5, then the formula to calculate price would be
=D5/45%
Since multiplying the full price by 45% will give you the cost of good sold, you can reverse the formula and divide the cost of goods sold by 45% and get the full price.**
