This question already has an answer here:

So a party of 4 level 4 PC's got an earth elemental. Personally I use Kobold Fight Club to manage my PC's encounters. Although I don't this elemental to make the game no longer balanced when fighting battles that should be considered dangerous or difficult making them easy. In order to create this balance would the earth elemental be considered equal to 4 more PC's or equivalent level or one level 5 PC
