Calculating Mins, Mids, and Maxes
Calculation of Minimums, Midpoints, and Maximums
Given either a minimum, midpoint or maximum, and a range spread (RS), the two remaining figures may be calculated by producing a factor from the formulas in the following table and multiplying by the known quantity.
<table cellpadding=0 cellspacing=“5px” cellpadding=“5px” border=0 align=middle width="550">
<td align=left colspan=4>
If known figure is:
For example: If a given maximum salary is $1,500 and the desired range spread is 40%, then the midpoint salary may be found by selecting the appropriate factor formula from the table, then inserting the range spread (RS) of 40%, and multiplying by the salary of $1,500:
(2.4/2.8)x$1,500 = $1,286
