Enter the total amount of time (min) and the total amount of items processed into the Processing Time Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Processing Time.

## Processing Time Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Processing Time.

**PT = T / #IP**

Variables:

- PT is the Processing Time (minutes per item)
- T is the total amount of time (min)
- #IP is the total amount of items processed

## How to Calculate Processing Time?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Processing Time.

- First, determine the total amount of time (min).
- Next, determine the total amount of items processed.
- Next, gather the formula from above = PT = T / #IP.
- Finally, calculate the Processing Time.
- 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.

total amount of time (min) = 40

total amount of items processed = 300

PT = T / #IP** **= ?
