☆  calculated  計算された


If something is calculated to have a particular effect, it is specially done or arranged in order to have that effect. Other words you can use are deliberate, intentional, planned or intended.

The most common way you’ll hear this word used in terms of business, is that someone took a “calculated risk”. This means that the person is doing something that they think might be successful, but they know it is risky, and they have fully considered the possible negative consequences.

For example, if you decide quit your job to start your own business, you would hopefully say it is a calculated risk – you have considered the negative possibilities but believe your chances of success are high, so you are going to go for it!
