### Example of Accelerated Reader Points Calculator

Let’s go through an example to illustrate how the calculator works. Suppose a student read a book with 15,000 words and scored 80% on the AR quiz. Using the formula:

AR Points = (15,000 / 2) * (80 / 100)

= 7,500 * 0.8

= 6,000

The student would earn 6,000 AR points for this book.
