Enter the total points scored and the total time played (min) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Points Per Minute. 

Points Per Minute Formula

PPM = P / PT


  • PPM is the Points Per Minute (points/min)
  • P is the total points scored
  • PT is the total time played (min)

To calculate Points Per Minute, divide the total number of points scored by the total time played.

How to Calculate Points Per Minute?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Points Per Minute.

  1. First, determine the total points scored. 
  2. Next, determine the total time played (min). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = PPM = P / PT.
  4. Finally, calculate the Points Per Minute.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem :
