# Formula for the perfect road trip with the kids

Last week it was a formula to the answer of "Are we there yet" this week it’s a formula to help you create the perfect road trip this summer:

Y= M ((C1)3 + (C2)2 + C3)
_________________________

100(1+ 2B + 3A)

Devised by a well travelled management consultant with two sets of
twins, the formula, created by educational toy maker LeapFrog combines key travel factors, personal experience and expertise to equate the following:

Y = the perfect road trip this summer

M = the total miles to be driven

C1 = the total number of children aged 0-3

C2= the total number of children aged 4-6

C3= the total number of children aged 7-11

B = the number of planned breaks, over and above the RAC recommended amount

A = the number of planned activities

The different journey values can be found below, opening the eyes of parents across the UK to the types of journeys many will face.
