## Poly Bag Weight Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Poly Bag Weight.

**PBW = W* L * M / 15**

Variables:

- PBW is the Poly Bag Weight (lbs per thousand bags)
- W is the width (in)
- L is the length (in)
- M is the millage

## How to Calculate Poly Bag Weight?

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Poly Bag Weight.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the width (in).
- The width (in) is calculated to be : 6.

- Next, determine the length (in).
- The length (in) is measured to be: 12.

- Next, determine the millage.
- The millage is found to be: 3.

- Finally, calculate the Poly Bag Weight using the formula above:

PBW = W* L * M / 15

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

PBW = 6*12* 3 / 15 = 14.4 (lbs per thousand bags)

**Example Problem #2**

The variables required for this problem are provided below:

width (in) = 10

length (in) = 12

millage = 1.5

Test your knowledge and check your answer with the calculator.

PBW = W* L * M / 15 =** **(lbs per thousand bags)
