A. Calculate the amount of Apple’s gross profit for each year. Has gross profit as a percentage of sales changed significantly during the past year?

2008 2007

Net Sales $32,479.00 $24,006.00

Cost of sales $21,334.00 $15,852.00

Gross Profit $11,145.00 $8,154.00

B. Calculate the amount of Apple’s operating income for each year. Has operating income as a percentage of sales changed significantly during the past year?

But I need to figure out how to calculate the % of operating income each year??? Checked my book and other websites can't find much any help would be great



I am taking this course online so there is no class time and it is hard to interact with my teacher please only leave me a comment if you are able to help me figure out the question above or a website that I might find that information?

So this is what I am thinking

Net sales - cost of merchandise sold = gross profit

Gross profit - cost of sales or selling, general & administrative = operating income

ALSO: Operating income as a percentage of sales = operating income/sales.

Is this correct?
