Enter the total number of encounters and the total chances for encounters into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Encounter Rate.

## Encounter Rate Formula

ER = E / C * 100

Variables:

- ER is the Encounter Rate (%)
- E is the total number of encounters
- C is the total chances for an encounter

To calculate Encounter Rate, divide the total number of encounters by the number of changes for an encounter.

## How to Calculate Encounter Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Encounter Rate.

- First, determine the total number of encounters.
- Next, determine the total chances for an encounter.
- Next, gather the formula from above = ER = E / C * 100.
- Finally, calculate the Encounter Rate.
- 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.

total number of encounters = 78

total chances for encounter = 100
