Enter the book level and the number of words in the book into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Accelerated Reader Points.

## Accelerated Reader Points Formula

ARP = [(10+BL)/10] * (W/10000)

Variables:

- ARP is the Accelerated Reader Points (points)
- BL is the book level
- W is the number of words in the book

To calculate Accelerated Reader Points, add 10 to the book level, divide this result by 10, then multiply by the number of words over 10,000.

## How to Calculate Accelerated Reader Points?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Accelerated Reader Points.

- First, determine the book level.
- Next, determine the number of words in the book.
- Next, gather the formula from above = ARP = [(10+BL)/10] * (W/10000).
- Finally, calculate the Accelerated Reader Points.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

book level = 2.5

number of words in the book = 2000
