Where:
A1 is $138,009,092;
A is the total amount available for the year under the HEPPP (see section 1.45.1);
B is the total number of domestic undergraduate students from low SES backgrounds enrolled at the relevant higher education provider in the most recent year for which HEIMS data is available;
C is the total number of domestic undergraduate students from low SES backgrounds enrolled at all Table A providers in the most recent year for which HEIMS data is available;
