‘5% coverage’ is a measure that most printer manufacturers use to calculate the number of pages that can be printed with one cartridge. It means that 5% of the whole page is covered in ink or toner. When doing the calculation, printer manufacturers assume basic type with no bold characters, no graphics, and no pictures.
What does standard yield mean?
The ink or toner cartridge prints a standard number of pages at 5% coverage.

A high-yield cartridge will print more pages than a standard yield cartridge. Although the initial outlay is higher, the cost per page is lower.
What does super-high-yield mean?
Super-high-yield cartridges give you an even lower cost per page, because they print even more pages
