Enter the actual difference and the expected difference into the Return on Expectations Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Return on Expectations. 

Return on Expectations Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Return on Expectations. 

ROEx = AD / ED *100

  • Where ROEx is the Return on Expectations (%)
  • AD is the actual difference 
  • ED is the expected difference 

How to Calculate Return on Expectations?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Return on Expectations.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the actual difference. 
    • The actual difference is given as: 45.
  2. Next, determine the expected difference. 
    • The expected difference is provided as: 70.
  3. Finally, calculate the Return on Expectations using the equation above: 

ROEx = AD / ED *100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

ROEx = 45 / 70 *100 = 64.28 (%)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

actual difference = 30

expected difference = 80

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. 

ROEx = AD / ED *100 = ?
