Enter the uncompressed size and the compressed size into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Text Compression Ratio.

## Text Compression Ratio Formula

TCR = US / CS

Variables:

- TCR is the Text Compression Ratio ()
- US is the uncompressed size
- CS is the compressed size

To calculate the Text Compression Ratio, divide the uncompressed text size by the compressed text size.

## How to Calculate Text Compression Ratio?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Text Compression Ratio.

- First, determine the uncompressed size.
- Next, determine the compressed size.
- Next, gather the formula from above = TCR = US / CS.
- Finally, calculate the Text Compression 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.

uncompressed size = 5

compressed size = 6
