The Efficiency of Marker

It is the ratio between the area covered by pattern pieces and the total area of marker paper. It is expressed by %.


Marker Efficiency (ME)

: (Area covered by pattern pieces / Total area of marker paper) X 100

: (90 / 100) X 100

: 90%

This is a sample calculation; you can calculate maker efficiency by this method.
