## Failure Rate Calculator

The Failure Rate Calculator is a tool used to estimate the failure rate of a system or component. The failure rate represents the probability of a failure occurring within a specific time period. It is commonly used in reliability engineering to assess the reliability and performance of systems.

### Formula

The formula for calculating failure rate is:

**Failure Rate = Number of Failures / Total Operating Time**

### Example

If a system has experienced 10 failures over 1000 hours of operation, the failure rate would be calculated as follows: Failure Rate = 10 / 1000 = 0.01 failures per hour
