Hello,

From what I understand, I am trying to find out cost per page of printing. I believe its the cost of toner / by the amount of pages a toner can produce?

so £50 / 3000 = 0.01p (excluding cost of the paper)

However what would the price be if I came across the following?

£19.99 / 2100 ?

I can't work out the cost since it becomes 0.0009

Any ideas?

Thanks

Looks like you may be loosing track of decimal places. Assuming there is 100 pence (p) in 1 pound (£) ...

A £50 toner cartridge that could print 3000 pages would result in a cost of £0.01667 per page, or 1.667p per page.

A £19.99 toner cartridge that could print 2100 pages would result in a cost of £0.00952 per page, or 0.952p per page
