Enter the point size of a headline (points) into the Pica Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Pica.

## Pica Formula

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

P = H / 12

Variables:

• P is the Pica (picas)
• H is the point size of a headline (points)

To calculate the picas, divide the point size of the headline by 12.

## How to Calculate Pica?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Pica.

1. First, determine the point size of a headline (points).
2. Next, gather the formula from above = P = H / 12.
3. Finally, calculate the Pica.
4. 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.

point size of a headline (points) = 144

P = H / 12 = ?
