Enter the total length of material and the total number of pieces needed into the Cut Length Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Cut Length.

## Cut Length Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Cut Length.

CL = L / P

- Where CL is the Cut Length
- L is the total length of material
- P is the total number of pieces needed

To calculate the cut length, divide the total length of material by the number of pieces needed.

## How to Calculate Cut Length?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Cut Length.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total length of material.
- The total length of material is given as: 400.

- Next, determine the total number of pieces needed.
- The total number of pieces needed is provided as: 10.

- Finally, calculate the Cut Length using the equation above:

CL = L / #P

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

CL = 400 / 10 = 40.00

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total length of material = 300

total number of pieces needed = 20

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

CL = L / #P** = ?**
