Enter the total height and the total base dimension into the Height to Base Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Height to Base Ratio. 

Height to Base Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Height to Base Ratio. 

HBR = H / B * 100

  • Where HBR is the Height to Base Ratio (%)
  • H is the total height 
  • B is the total base dimension 

How to Calculate Height to Base Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Height to Base Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total height. 
    • The total height is given as: 5.
  2. Next, determine the total base dimension. 
    • The total base dimension is provided as: 20.
  3. Finally, calculate the Height to Base Ratio using the equation above: 

HBR = H / B * 100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

HBR = 5 / 20 * 100 = 25.00 (%)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total height = 6

total base dimension = 70

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

HBR = H / B * 100 = ?
