## Marriage Success Rate Formula

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

MSR = (M-D) / M  * 100

• Where MSR is the Marriage Success Rate (%)
• D is the number of divorces
• M is the number of marriages

## How to Calculate Marriage Success Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Marriage Success Rate.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the number of divorces.
• The number of divorces is given as: 300.
2. Next, determine the number of marriages.
• The number of marriages is provided as: 1000.
3. Finally, calculate the Marriage Success Rate using the equation above:

MSR = (M-D) / M  * 100

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

MSR = (1000-300) / 1000  * 100 = 70.00 (%)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

number of divorces = 100

number of marriages = 500
