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.

- First, determine the point size of a headline (points).
- Next, gather the formula from above = P = H / 12`.
- Finally, calculate the Pica.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
