Enter the total cost ($) and the overall distance (miles) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Rate Per Mile. 

Rate Per Mile Formula

RM = C / TD


  • RM is the Rate Per Mile ($/mile)
  • C is the total cost ($)
  • TD is the overall distance (miles)

To calculate the Rate Per Mile, divide the total cost by the distance in miles.

How to Calculate Rate Per Mile?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Rate Per Mile.

  • First, determine the total cost ($). 
  • Next, determine the overall distance (miles). 
  • Next, gather the formula from above = RM = C / TD.
  • Finally, calculate the Rate Per Mile.
  • 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 cost ($) = 1284

overall distance (miles) = 129
