Enter the amount of data downloaded and the amount of time it took for the download into the Download Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Download Rate.

## Download Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Download Rate.

DWR = D / T

- Where DWR is the Download Rate (data/time)
- D is the amount of data downloaded
- T is the amount of time it took for the download

To calculate the download rate, divide the amount of data downloaded by the amount of time.

## How to Calculate Download Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Download Rate.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the amount of data downloaded.
- The amount of data downloaded is given as: 500.

- Next, determine the amount of time it took for the download.
- The amount of time it took for the download is provided as: 10.

- Finally, calculate the Download Rate using the equation above:

DWR = D / T

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

DWR = 500 / 10 = 50 (data/time)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

amount of data downloaded = 600

amount of time it took for the download = 70

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

DWR = D / T** = ?**
