Enter the quantity of the unit and the reference measurement into the Arbitrary Units Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Arbitrary Units.

## Arbitrary Units Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Arbitrary Units.

AU = QU / RU

Variables:

- AU is the Arbitrary Units (quantity/reference)
- QU is the quantity of the unit
- RU is the reference measurement

To calculate the arbitrary units, divide the quantity of unit by the reference measurement.

## How to Calculate Arbitrary Units?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Arbitrary Units.

- First, determine the quantity of the unit.
- Next, determine the reference measurement.
- Next, gather the formula from above = AU = QU / RU.
- Finally, calculate the Arbitrary Units.
- 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.

quantity of the unit = 300

reference measurement = 250

AU = QU / RU** **= ?
