Calculate FTP for ergometer

Hi my friend wants to start with trainerroad in a fitnesstudio. They have ergometers with displays showing the watts but do not allow any connection to a smartphone. So we need to calculate the ftp by ourselfs and ad it manually.

“After completing the Ramp Test, we calculate your FTP using a 75% reduction to your highest 1-minute of power. Again, every second matters, so even if you only progress partly through your last step, it will affect the outcome.”

Just to get it right if the last step was 30 watts and she finishes 30 seconds in 40 watts the ftp is 26.25 watts - correct?

Thanks for your help.

do the 20 min test version instead.
