Time is Money: We divide your answer time (2 seconds) by the total time you had (30 seconds). This gives us 0.067. 3. Half and Subtract: We then cut this number in half (0.033) and subtract it from 1. This leaves us with 0.967. 4. Multiply and Score: We multiply this by the total points for the question, let's say 1000. This means your score for the question is 967. 5.
