    Mathematic problem


    I know last month usage Bandwidth in MB : i.e. 10000
    I know current value of Bandwidth in MB calculated in a x day of the month : i.e. 8250

    May I estimate bandwidth usage at the end of the month in MB?

    Well,

    Not a very precise solution, but you can probably come relatively close by computing average daily bandwidth usage and then multiplying that amount by the number of days in the month.

    Example:

    It is the 10th day of a 31 day month and your usage so far is 8250 MB

    Average Daily Usage: 8250MB/10 = 825MB

    So: 825MB * 31 = 25575MB

    Many variables can affect this and it would be a closer estimate further on in the month, but that is the best solution I can come up with without applying statistical weighting for your particular usage history.
