- PA is the points allowed

To calculate Point Margin, subtract the points allowed from the points scored.

## How to Calculate Point Margin?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Point Margin.

- First, determine the points scored.
- Next, determine the points allowed.
- Next, gather the formula from above = PM = PS – PA.
- Finally, calculate the Point Margin.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
