Enter the carriage rate ($/mile) and the total distance (miles) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Carriage Cost.

## Carriage Cost Formula

CAR = CR/100 * D

Variables:

- CAR is the Carriage Cost ($)
- CR is the carriage rate ($/mile)
- D is the total distance (miles)

To calculate the Carriage Cost, multiply the carriage rate by the distance.

## How to Calculate Carriage Cost?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Carriage Cost.

- First, determine the carriage rate ($/mile).
- Next, determine the total distance (miles).
- Next, gather the formula from above = CAR = CR/100 * D.
- Finally, calculate the Carriage Cost.
- 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.

carriage rate ($/mile) = 3.5

total distance (miles) = 500
