Managing costs on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) can be a complex task, especially when dealing with multiple users and services. To simplify this process, we’ve developed the GCP Costs Calculator, a handy tool that helps you determine the cost per user quickly and accurately.

## Formula

The formula for calculating the cost per user using our GCP Costs Calculator is straightforward:

**Cost per User = Total Cost / Number of Users**

This formula allows you to divide the total cost by the number of users to find out how much each user contributes to the overall expenses.

## How to Use

Using the GCP Costs Calculator is a breeze:

- Enter the total cost of your GCP services in the “Total Cost” field.
- Input the number of users utilizing these services in the “Number of Users” field.
- Specify the cost associated with each user in the “Cost Per User” field.
- Click the “Calculate” button.

The calculator will instantly provide you with the cost per user.

## Example

Let’s say your total GCP cost is $1,000, and you have 50 users. To calculate the cost per user:

- Enter $1,000 as the total cost.
- Enter 50 as the number of users.
- Click “Calculate.”

The calculator will display the cost per user, which in this case is $20.
