if a company earns 900 million in revenue with 90 million or so profit, the rest expenses and taxes, what is that called?

poking around, i get the impression it's not called a profit rate or a profit margin. could be misunderstanding, though.

and in any event, i seem to recall doug posting something here indicating that the typical large, public corporation had about 1-2% profits -- whatever that meant, actually. Is that correct?
