Enter the asset value ($) and the exposure factor into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Single Loss Expectancy.

## Single Loss Expectancy Formula

SLE = AV * EF

Variables:

- SLE is the Single Loss Expectancy ($)
- AV is the asset value ($)
- EF is the exposure factor

To calculate Single Loss Expectancy, multiply the asset value by the exposure factor.

## How to Calculate Single Loss Expectancy?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Single Loss Expectancy.

- First, determine the asset value ($).
- Next, determine the exposure factor.
- Next, gather the formula from above = SLE = AV * EF.
- Finally, calculate the Single Loss Expectancy.
- 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.

asset value ($) = 500,000

exposure factor = 0.75
