Enter the display aspect ratio and the storage aspect ratio into the Pixel Aspect Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Pixel Aspect Ratio.

## Pixel Aspect Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Pixel Aspect Ratio.

PAR = DAR/SAR

- Where PAR is the Pixel Aspect Ratio ( )
- DAR is the display aspect ratio
- SAR is the storage aspect ratio

To calculate the pixel aspect ratio, divide the display aspect ratio by the storage aspect ratio.

## How to Calculate Pixel Aspect Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Pixel Aspect Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the display aspect ratio.
- The display aspect ratio is given as: 3.

- Next, determine the storage aspect ratio.
- The storage aspect ratio is provided as: 2.

- Finally, calculate the Pixel Aspect Ratio using the equation above:

PAR = DAR/SAR

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

PAR = 3/2 = 1.5 ( )

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

display aspect ratio = 8

storage aspect ratio = 9

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

PAR = DAR/SAR** = ?**
