Enter the absolute value of the delta and the number of option contracts into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Delta Hedge Quantity.

## Delta Hedge Quantity Formula

DH = AVD * O * 100

Variables:

- DH is the Delta Hedge Quantity ()
- AVD is the absolute value of the delta
- O is the number of option contracts

To calculate Delta Hedge Quantity, multiply the absolute value of the delta by the number of option contracts, then multiply by 100.

## How to Calculate Delta Hedge Quantity?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Delta Hedge Quantity.

- First, determine the absolute value of the delta.
- Next, determine the number of option contracts.
- Next, gather the formula from above = DH = AVD * #O * 100.
- Finally, calculate the Delta Hedge Quantity.
- 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.

absolute value of the delta = 4.25

number of option contracts = 300
