80/350=0.23 dollars per GB of data transfer

80/30=2.67 dollars per GB of space

(rounded figures)

Math skills aside, did you know that Windows comes with a calculator?

You can't use the same \$80 to pay the two things -- you are spending \$160

Yeah, I thought about that too, but I supposed he's just after some proportions. Otherwise things would be largely to personal interpretation/weighting.

Proportion.

/ = Over

80/350 X/1 = Cross Multiply 80&1 then divide the answer by 350.. Here's a pic of it.

X is the unknown that you want to know. The answer would be 0.228571..etc you can just round to 0.23 because there's an 8 nex to the 2nd two.

You can do the same thing for the space too. Just replace 80 with the amount of money spent on the space. And replace 350GB with 30GB. Then, do the same process.

I think OP is asking "how much of the \$80 am I paying for bandwidth, and how much of the \$80 for the space?"

The answer is: nobody knows. There isn't a constant proportion. And you are not only paying for traffic and space, you are also paying for RAM, processor power, and support.

So, you won't get a good answer for that question.

if you were going to give away 50% of your bandwidth and disc space so that you could afford the VPS
how much would you charge for example for
200 MB disc and 2000 MB of bandwidth.

I guess I didn't understand your question but let's say I have a server with Softlayer and want to add a second HD and use additional bandwidth, SL would charge \$15-20/month for a 250GB SATA and \$0.10/GB bw overage.

I'd say you did...that's like saying when you sign up for a hosting account that gives you 1 gig of storage and 10 gigs of bandwidth for 5 bucks a month, you'll have to pay ten...5 for storage and 5 for bandwidth.

You're right though in a certain way. He's not just paying for one or the other, but both.

\$80/month for 30/350 gigs= \$2.67 for every unit of 1/11.67 gigs (since when you buy a plan, they almost always come come coupled).

He could round it down to \$2.50 for every 1/10 and use that as a guide for comparisons.

Although you can get it cheaper at elsewheres, per gig thats a bit?
