            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Jeffrey L. Poulson, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., Mullins, J., and Potterfield, S.J.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (6 pages)

            Mark Ditsworth appeals a district court order affirming the Iowa Workers’ Compensation Commission’s award of benefits.  Distworth argues the commissioner inappropriately considered a settlement reached on a prior injury in reducing his benefits award.  OPINION HOLDS: We agree with the district court that the commissioner’s calculation gave effect to the statute.  Because the calculation used by the commissioner to determine the award of benefits was based on the applicable statutes, we affirm.
