    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
