Actually, I think the larger issue, is a /24 will end up being pennies. 
ISP's hold huge sums of /24s, so averaging them out means the single /24 
end-users will have a bill too small to pay. You would have to set a 
base fee, subtract the base fee from ARIN's budget total, then apply the 
equation to average out the resource utilization.

So an end-user assignment might pay $base_fee + $0.01 for their /24.

ARIN: 37 /8
Administered by ARIN: 39

So, ARIN has 2,424,832 /24s, double if the 39 administers are LRSA.

Take your budget, subtract ($base fee ($100?) * entities), then divide 
by the appropriate /24 number. Something tells me, it is way below $1 
per /24. This is a rough estimate based on v4 alone. If the equation 
balances properly between v4 and v6 size differentials, then the value 
should still be close to the end result.
