Enter the total cost ($) and the barge weight (tons) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Barge Rate.

## Barge Rate Formula

BR = TC / W

Variables:

- BR is the Barge Rate ($/ton)
- TC is the total cost ($)
- W is the barge weight (tons)

To calculate the Barge Rate, divide the cost by the barge weight.

## How to Calculate Barge Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Barge Rate.

- First, determine the total cost ($).
- Next, determine the barge weight (tons).
- Next, gather the formula from above = BR = TC / W.
- Finally, calculate the Barge Rate.
- 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.

total cost ($) = 45849

barge weight (tons) = 12
