The following equation can be used to calculate the basis points from percentage.
BPS = % * 100
- BPS is the basis points
- % is the percentage
BPS, short for basis points, is a term used to describe 1 – thousandth of a percentage. That is 1 basis point is .001%.
Basis Points Example
How to calculate basis points
- First, determine the percentage amount
This should be in the decimal form of the percentage. For example, 50% would be .50.
- Next, calculate the basis points
Multiply the decimal value from step one by 1000 to get your basis points.
A basis point is a mathematical term used to describe one-one thousandth of a percentage.
A basis point is used when extremely small percentages are concerned. Typically this occurs in problems with very small values such as parts of pollution in the air.
