Enter the total amount of thread (in) and the seam length (in) into the Thread Consumption Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Thread Consumption.

## Thread Consumption Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Thread Consumption.

**TC = T / SL**

Variables:

- TC is the Thread Consumption ( )
- T is the total amount of thread (in)
- SL is the seam length (in)

## How to Calculate Thread Consumption?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Thread Consumption.

- First, determine the total amount of thread (in).
- Next, determine the seam length (in).
- Next, gather the formula from above = TC = T / SL.
- Finally, calculate the Thread Consumption.
- 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.

total amount of thread (in) = 30

seam length (in) = 50

TC = T / SL** **= ?
