1 Q2 2022 Calculation
Gross profit margin = 100 × (Gross profitQ2 2022 + Gross profitQ1 2022 + Gross profitQ4 2021 + Gross profitQ3 2021) ÷ (RevenuesQ2 2022 + RevenuesQ1 2022 + RevenuesQ4 2021 + RevenuesQ3 2021)
= 100 × (4,523,959 + 4,916,789 + 4,466,216 + 4,404,384) ÷ (15,046,693 + 14,965,153 + 13,419,284 + 13,263,795) = 32.30%
