Enter the average points scored and the average points allowed into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Point Differential.

## Point Differential Formula

PD = APS - APA

Variables:

- PD is the Point Differential ()
- APS is the average points scored
- APA is the average points allowed

To calculate Point Differential, simply subtract the average points allowed by the average points scored.

## How to Calculate Point Differential?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Point Differential.

- First, determine the average points scored.
- Next, determine the average points allowed.
- Next, gather the formula from above = PD = APS – APA.
- Finally, calculate the Point Differential.
- 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.

average points scored = 120

average points allowed = 110
