Top Cut Calculator: Accurate Tournament Results

This tool helps you calculate the top cut percentage for any given dataset.

How to Use the Top Cut Calculator

To use this calculator, simply enter the total number of participants and the top percentage you want to calculate. Then, click the “Calculate” button to see the result.


  1. Enter the number of participants in the “Number of Participants” input field.
  2. Enter the top percentage in the “Top Percentage” input field.
  3. Click the “Calculate” button.
  4. The result will be displayed in the “Result” field.

Calculation Method:

The result is calculated by multiplying the number of participants by the top percentage, then dividing by 100, and rounding up to the nearest whole number. Mathematically, it can be expressed as:

Result = ceil((Number of Participants * Top Percentage) / 100)


  • Both input values must be positive numbers.
  • The top percentage must be less than or equal to 100.
  • The calculator does not handle decimal percentages; input should be in whole numbers.
