## How to Calculate Heptathlon Score

The formula to calculate points for each event is:

$\text{Points} = A \times (B – P)^C$

Variables:

Variable | Description |
---|---|

A | Constant specific to each event |

B | Constant specific to each event |

P | Performance (result) in the event |

C | Constant specific to each event |

### Calculation Example 1

**Event: 100m Hurdles**

**Step 1**: Enter the time (14.5 seconds).

**Step 2**: Use the constants

$A = 9.23076$

$B = 26.7$

$C = 1.835$

**Step 3**: Apply the formula.

$\text{Points} = 9.23076 \times (26.7 – 14.5)^{1.835}$

**Step 4**: Simplify inside the parentheses.

$\text{Points} = 9.23076 \times 12.2^{1.835}$

**Step 5**: Calculate the exponent.

$\text{Points} = 9.23076 \times 150.191$

**Step 6**: Multiply.

$\text{Points} = 1385.33$

The points for 100m hurdles are 1385.33.

### Calculation Example 2

**Event: High Jump**

**Step 1**: Enter the height (1.75 meters).

**Step 2**: Use the constants

$A = 1.84523$

$B = 75$

$C = 1.348$

**Step 3**: Apply the formula.

$\text{Points} = 1.84523 \times (175 – 75)^{1.348}$

**Step 4**: Simplify inside the parentheses.

$\text{Points} = 1.84523 \times 100^{1.348}$

**Step 5**: Calculate the exponent.

$\text{Points} = 1.84523 \times 263.144$

**Step 6**: Multiply.

$\text{Points} = 485.32$

The points for high jump are 485.32.
