Enter the suppression time and the epoch length into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Suppression Ratio.

## Suppression Ratio Formula

BSR = ST/EL * 100

Variables:

- BSR is the Suppression Ratio (%)
- ST is the suppression time
- El is the epoch length

To calculate Suppression Ratio, divide the suppression time by the epoch length, then multiply by 100.

## How to Calculate Suppression Ratio?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Suppression Ratio.

- First, determine the suppression time.
- Next, determine the epoch length.
- Next, gather the formula from above = BSR = ST/EL * 100.
- Finally, calculate the Suppression Ratio.
- 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.

suppression time = 0.5

epoch length = 0.23
