If you're familiar with our quiz builder, you probably know that there are a few different types of quizzes that you can create:

In this article, we'll take a look at the way the **formula **that is used to calculate the result of a "Percentage" quiz type.

When someone fills in your quiz, that is a "Percentage" type, the result they are shown represents a **certain value in percentages:**

** **

Here's how this value is calculated:

First of all, the** range is determined**. The range represents the **number of maximum points a user can achieve** in the quiz, from which the **number of minimum points is subtracted. **

`Range = Maximum points that can be acheived by the user - Minimum points that can be acheived by the user`

Next, the result in **percentages** is being calculated, following this formula:

`Result (%) = (Points obtained by the user - Miminimum points that can be acheived by the user) * 100 / Range`

And this will be the final result.

For example, let's say we have created a quiz for which the user/visitor can score **maximum 15** points and **minimum 5. **

And let's say that, after answering all of the answers of the quiz, the person has gained **8 points.**

The range will be:

`Range = 15-5`

Range = 10

This means that the result shown will be calculated as such:

`Result = (8-5)*100/10`

Result(%) = 30%
