## Short Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Short Rate.

SHO = SF / IV * 100

- Where SHO is the Short Rate (%)
- SF is the total short fee ($)
- IV is the total insurance value ($)

To calculate the short rate, divide the short fee by the insurance value.

## How to Calculate Short Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Short Rate.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total short fee ($).
- The total short fee ($) is given as: 500.

- Next, determine the total insurance value ($).
- The total insurance value ($) is provided as: 10,000.

- Finally, calculate the Short Rate using the equation above:

SHO = SF / IV * 100

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

SHO = 500 / 10,000 * 100 = 5.00 (%)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:
