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

Point Margin Formula

PM = PS - PA


  • PM is the Point Margin (points)
  • PS is the points scored
  • 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.

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