Enter the total lot area (ft^2) and the parking ratio (%) into the Parking Area Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Parking Area.

## Parking Area Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Parking Area.

PARK = LA * PR/100

• Where PARK is the Parking Area (ft^2)
• LA is the total lot area (ft^2)
• PR is the parking ratio (%)

## How to Calculate Parking Area?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Parking Area.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total lot area (ft^2).
• The total lot area (ft^2) is given as: 1,000.
2. Next, determine the parking ratio (%).
• The parking ratio (%) is provided as: 20.
3. Finally, calculate the Parking Area using the equation above:

PARK = LA * PR/100

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

PARK = 1000 * 20/100 = 200.00 (ft^2)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total lot area (ft^2) = 2,000

parking ratio (%) = 50
