Calculate gross profit based on varying percentages

I am trying to calculate, based on a known product cost, what the gross sales
and gross profit dollars would be as a result of different GP percentages.

I.E. Here is some data for my company's products:

Sales Cost GP \$ GP %
\$208,400 \$197,354 \$11,046 5.3%
\$201,786 \$191,066 \$10,720 5.3%
\$89,421 \$82,452 \$6,969 7.8%
\$78,808 \$71,891 \$6,917 8.8%
\$63,114 \$58,706 \$4,407 7.0%

If I wanted to figure out how much the GP \$ and Sales were for the first row
using a GP % of 22%, for example, how could I calculate them? Thank you.

Calculate gross profit based on varying percentages

Input =F2/(1-0.22) in E2 and copy down
where a1:d6 is:
Sales Cost GP\$ GP%
\$208,400 \$197,354 \$11,046 5.30%
\$201,786 \$191,066 \$10,720 5.30%
\$89,421 \$82,452 \$6,969 7.80%
\$78,808 \$71,891 \$6,917 8.80%
\$63,114 \$58,706 \$4,407 7.00%
