Enter the area of the room (ft^2) and the occupancy index (ft^2/person) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Max Occupancy.

## Max Occupancy Formula

MO = A / UA

Variables:

- MO is the Max Occupancy (people)
- A is the area of the room (ft^2)
- UA is the occupancy index (ft^2/person)

To calculate Max Occupancy, divide the area of the room by the occupancy index.

## How to Calculate Max Occupancy?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Max Occupancy.

- First, determine the area of the room (ft^2).
- Next, determine the occupancy index (ft^2/person).
- Next, gather the formula from above = MO = A / UA.
- Finally, calculate the Max Occupancy.
- 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.

area of the room (ft^2) = 1,000

occupancy index (ft^2/person) = 20
