## Total Rebound Percentage Calculator

## What is Total Rebound Percentage?

Total rebound percentage is a metric that measures the percentage of rebounds in a game attributed to a single player.

## How to calculate Total Rebound Percentage

Steal Percentage is calculated as:

$latex \frac{100 \times \text{Player Rebounds} \times \text{Team Minutes Played}}{\text{Player Minutes Played}\times(\text{Team Total Rebounds}+\text{Opposing Team Total Rebounds})}$

## Example

A player has 15 steals and 36 minutes played, on a team that has played 48 minutes and 49 total rebounds. The opposing team has had 42 rebounds in this time.

$latex \text{Steal Percentage} = \frac{100 \times 15 \times 48}{36 \times (49 + 42)}$

$latex \text{Steal Percentage} = \frac{72000}{36 \times 91}$

$latex \text{Steal Percentage} = \frac{72000}{3276}$

$latex \text{Steal Percentage} = 21.98$

Therefore, this player’s rebound percentage would be 21.98% (21.98% of total rebounds that occurred in the game).
