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 (%)

To calculate a parking area, multiply the total lot area by the parking ratio.

## How to Calculate Parking Area?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Parking Area.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total lot area (ft^2).
- The total lot area (ft^2) is given as: 1,000.

- Next, determine the parking ratio (%).
- The parking ratio (%) is provided as: 20.

- 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

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

PARK = LA * PR/100** = ?**
