Enter the element height (pixels) and the element width (pixels) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Padding Ratio. 

Padding Ratio Formula

PR = H / W * 100


  • PRP is the Padding Ratio (%)
  • H is the element height (pixels)
  • W is the element width (pixels)

To calculate the Padding Ratio, divide the element height by the element width in pixels.

How to Calculate Padding Ratio?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Padding Ratio.

  1. First, determine the element height (pixels). 
  2. Next, determine the element width (pixels). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = PR = H / W * 100.
  4. Finally, calculate the Padding Ratio.
  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.

element height (pixels) = 500

element width (pixels) = 1500
