## 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

To calculate the marriage success rate, divide the difference between the number of marriages and divorces by the number of marriages, then multiply by 100.

## How to Calculate Marriage Success Rate?

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

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the number of divorces.
- The number of divorces is given as: 300.

- Next, determine the number of marriages.
- The number of marriages is provided as: 1000.

- 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
