Today, we will use Math to calculate the **Mortar Damage (Per Hit) **for the popular game Clash of Clans!

Reference: http://clashofclans.wikia.com/wiki/Mortar

The formula needed is **Damage per second (DPS) = Damage / Time**.

Hence, **Damage = DPS x Time!**

The Mortar **takes 5 seconds to fire**. Hence, take the **DPS **reading from the game, and multiply it by 5, and you will get the **actual damage** done by the Mortar!

For instance, Mortar Level 1 has 4 DPS. Hence, each shot does 4×5=20 damage.

The full stats are listed here:

Level | Damage per Second | Damage per Shot |
---|---|---|

1 | 4 | 20 |

2 | 5 | 25 |

3 | 6 | 30 |

4 | 7 | 35 |

5 | 8 | 40 |

6 | 9 | 45 |

7 | 11 | 55 |

8 | 13 | 65 |
