## 4 easy steps on how to calculate ROI (Return On Investment) with formula

Step 1: First note down your cost of investment. Cost of investment includes the price you have purchased the product/shares/property with the additional cost involved like taxes/fees/renovation (For Example Joel purchased a house for \$100,000 and spent \$20,000 on the renovation.
