Enter the total width and the total number of columns into the Column Width Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Column Width.

## Column Width Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Column Width.

**CW = W / #C**

Variables:

- CW is the Column Width
- W is the total width
- #C is the total number of columns

## How to Calculate Column Width?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Column Width.

- First, determine the total width.
- Next, determine the total number of columns.
- Next, gather the formula from above = CW = W / #C.
- Finally, calculate the Column Width.
- 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 width = 100

total number of columns = 2

CW = W / #C** **= ?
