Enter the time and the number of generations into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Generation Time. 

Generation Time Formula

GT = t/n


  • GT is the Generation Time (time/generation)
  • t (time) is the time
  • n (generations) is the number of generations

To calculate Generation Time, divide the time by the number of generations.

How to Calculate Generation Time?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Generation Time.

  1. First, determine the time. 
  2. Next, determine the number of generations. 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = GT = t/n.
  4. Finally, calculate the Generation Time.
  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.

time = 30

number of generations = 124
