Stock Turnove Ratio = $\frac {\textit{Cost of goods sold}}{\textit{Average stock}}$

Or, 8 = $\frac {\textit{Cost of goods sold}}{\textit{20,000}}$

or, Cost of Goods Sold = 20,000 × 8

or, Cost of Goods Sold = 1,60,000

Let Sale Price be Rs. 100

Then Profit is Rs. 20

Hence, the Cost of Revenue from Operations = Rs. 100

Rs. 20 = Rs. 80

If the Cost of Revenue from Operations is Rs. 80, then Revenue from operations = 100

If the Cost of Revenue from Operations is Rs. 1, then Revenue from operations = $\frac { 100 }{ 80 }$
If the Cost of Goods Sold is 1,60,000 then Sales $\frac { 100 }{ 80 }$ × 1,60,000

= 2,00,000
Profit = Revenue from Operations
=2,00,000 – 1,60,000 = Rs. 40,000
