# Cost Calculation for Printing Year-End Reports

## How much will it cost to print 15 copies of a 164-page year-end report?

Given the cost of a ream of 500 pages is $3.78, how much will the paper cost for printing the reports?

## Answer:

The paper will cost $18.9 for printing the reports.

Any expenses incurred due to the printing of the year-end report are considered printing costs. This includes the cost of printers, ink, and paper for printing, as well as other printer supplies.

The number of pages in the year-end report is 164 pages, and you need to print 15 copies for a meeting next week, which amounts to a total of 2460 pages (164*15).

Since a ream of paper contains 500 pages and is priced at $3.78, you will require 5 reams of paper to print the reports (2460/500 = 4.92 or approximately 5 reams).

Therefore, the total cost of printing the year-end reports will be $18.9 ($3.78 * 5 reams).
