What is the calculation for ERA ?

You can refer to the Statistics link on this site, for the ERA and lots of other statistical calculations:
Here is the ERA formula:
Earned Run Average
(earned runs * 9) / (innings pitched)
The "9" represents a nine-inning game. If you are calculating for a high school or youth league that plays seven-innings games, then you would use a "7" in that equation.

this is for typical 7 inning softball. but what about a weekend tournament that has a 1:30 time limit and you only get 4 innings completed?

If the game is scheduled for 7-innings, then you use the 7 in the formula. Games shortened by a mercy rule, weather, or time limits are not accounted for. Use the scheduled number of innings.
