Default How do I calculate my efficiency?

I did my second AG on sunday and would like to know how to calcualte my efficiency?
10.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) Us
1.00 lb Caravienne Malt
0.50 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine
0.50 oz Cascade (5 min)
1.00 oz Cascade (20 min)
0.75 oz Columbus (60 min)
1 Pkgs SafAle English Ale


SG 1.064 5 1/8th gallons

im going to dry hop with the remaining half ounce of cascade.

over all an uneventful brew this one came out really boring I learned never brew in the morning when it's to early for beer. My first all grain started at 3 pm and i was drunk by 6. seemed to go a lot faster(swmbo slayer im going to add orange zest to one week prior to kegging )
