Enter the total diminished value ($) and the total age (years) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Diminishing Rate.

## Diminishing Rate Formula

DR = DV / A

Variables:

- DV is the Diminishing Rate ($/year)
- DV is the total diminished value ($)
- A is the total age (years)

To calculate the Diminishing Rate, divide the total diminished value by the total age in years.

## How to Calculate Diminishing Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Diminishing Rate.

- First, determine the total diminished value ($).
- Next, determine the total age (years).
- Next, gather the formula from above = DR = DV / A.
- Finally, calculate the Diminishing Rate.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
