The **Cents Per Point Calculator** is useful for determining the value of points earned in a rewards program or travel loyalty scheme. It calculates how many cents each point is worth, providing insights into the effectiveness of spending or redeeming points.

### Formula Explanation

The formula used to calculate cents per point (CPP) is:

\[ \text{CPP} = \left(\frac{\text{Total Cost (\$)}}{\text{Points Earned}}\right) \times 100 \]

This calculation helps determine the efficiency of using points, whether for travel, purchases, or any other redemption scenario.

### Example Calculation

If you spend $500 and earn 50,000 points, the CPP calculation would be:

\[ \text{CPP} = \left(\frac{500}{50000}\right) \times 100 = 1.00 \text{ cents per point} \]

This means each point is effectively worth 1 cent.

### Importance of CPP

Understanding CPP allows users to maximize rewards by identifying whether a particular redemption offers good value compared to others.
