How do I invert this calculation?

  • I have an explosion which as closer as the object B are, more points will be earned.

    I've established that every 5px closer, 1 point will be added and 200px is the explosions edge. So, in order to do an automatic comparison between these two objects, I came up with this:

    Within 200px radius, I have 40 points (200/5 = 40 points)

    I want to invert this, so I can get the right point measure. So, if I'm 5px close to the explosion, I get 40 points. If i'm 200px far, I get 1 point. If I'm 100px far, I get 20 points and so on

    I'm not good with math so would be nice if someone could help me on that.

  • max points = 40

    radius = 200

    ( radius - distance(objectb.x,objectb.y,explosion.x,explosion.y)) / radius * max points

    for example 200 - 50 = 150 , 150/200 = 0.75 , 0.75 * 40 = 30 points

  • max points = 40

    radius = 200

    ( radius - distance(objectb.x,objectb.y,explosion.x,explosion.y)) / radius * max points

    for example 200 - 50 = 150 , 150/200 = 0.75 , 0.75 * 40 = 30 points

    Thank you. You've saved me.

    You are very welcome. I'm glad that I could help.
