Enter the total TV size (inches) into the TV Distance Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the TV Distance. 

TV Distance Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the TV Distance. 

Dtv = TVs  * 2 / 12
  • Where Dtv is the TV viewing Distance (ft)
  • TVs is the total TV size (inches) 

To calculate the TV viewing distance, divide the TV size in inches by 6, then use the calculated value and switch the units to feet.

How to Calculate TV Distance?

The following example problems outline how to calculate TV Distance.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total TV size (inches).
    • The total TV size (inches) is given as: 80.
  2. Finally, calculate the TV Distance using the equation above: 

Dtv = TVs  * 2 / 12

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

Dtv = 80  * 2 / 12 = 13.33 (ft)

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

total TV size (inches) = 45

${V2} = ${number 4}

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. 

Dtv = TVs  * 2 / 12 = ?
