So, thinking about this principle, let me ask you a question. If your sales grew 10% and nothing else changed, would your profit margin be higher, the same, or less? Profit margin is % of profit against sales. If you said the profit margin would be higher, then you are right. Why would your profit be higher? If you said because of the fixed expenses, you would be right. Your material cost, labor cost, and variable expenses would have gone up 10% but your fixed expenses would have remained the same. You brought in more revenue because of more sales and you spent 10 % more on material, labor, and variable expense to cover the extra sales, but you didn't spend any more on your fixed expenses. So, less overall expenses, would give you higher profit margin. Make sense?
Maybe it would be much better to have focused on profit than sales. What if profit had been the focus instead of sales. What if this could have been the result? บꯠꯠ x 2% = 赨ꯠ profit ũꯠꯠ x 25% = 趚ꯠ profit
