How do you calculate electronegativity?

Electronegativity is a measure, specifically of the tendency of an atom to attract to a bonded pair of electrons. Most of the time, you will see the Pauling scale associated with electronegativity, but I believe these are already determined values.

I think we would be provided values of electronegativity but we would just have to calculate electronegativity differences to determine what kind of bond 2 atoms share.

We would only have to calculate the differences in electronegativity between already given values, as in we should be provided with either an electronegativity table or the relevant exact figures for a given problem.
