Enter the built density (dwelling units/area) and the typical density (dwelling units/area) into the Density Bonus Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Density Bonus.

## Density Bonus Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Density Bonus.

DB = (BD-TD) / TD * 100

Variables:

• DB is the Density Bonus (%)
• BD is the built density (dwelling units/area)
• TD is the typical density (dwelling units/area)

## How to Calculate Density Bonus?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Density Bonus.

1. First, determine the built density (dwelling units/area).
2. Next, determine the typical density (dwelling units/area).
3. Next, gather the formula from above = DB = (BD-TD) / TD * 100.
4. Finally, calculate the Density Bonus.
5. 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.

built density (dwelling units/area) = 90

typical density (dwelling units/area) = 80

DB = (BD-TD) / TD * 100 = ?
