### How to work out percentage of items

The concept of "percentage difference" depends upon what you use as your comparator, or the "base" amount.

Suppose the 8.50 value is entered in cell B3 and 4.80 is entered in cell C3.

To compute what percentage you'd save (off the higher price) if you buy from the cheaper supplier, you could enter into cell D3 a formula like: =(B3-C3)/B3
This would result in a numeric value of 0.435294, meaning you'd save about 43.53% off the higher price. In this case, your "base" amount is \$8.50.

Alternatively, if you used the lower price as the "base", then you could use a formula like: =B3/C3
This would result in a numeric value of 1.770833, meaning the higher price is 177.08% of the lower price, so it costs about 77% more.

HTH!

### I am working on a spreadsheet for my boss that will allow him to track the progress of our sales team. I've done the formatting, etc, but am now onto the formulas. I have suggested revisions to the sheet...

Try having the cells refer to the ones you would like in the formula then have a statement something like if a = 1 then yes or if a = 2 then no and have it after become a percentage by dividing the sum by the count. Let me know if you need more help.

It could have a virus or simply too much data in it or too much data linked to it. Try doing a copy of the whole spreadsheet, and then paste the data into a new spreadsheet. If it doesn't contain too many different formulas, try pasting only the values, and then replace the formulas manually. You might also try just deleting the links, if there are any. If this doesn't solve it, reply to this thread and let us know.

Hope this will FixYa!!!

### Percentages in Excel

No problem, Melinda, I am here to help!

A B C D
1 Question Yes No Total
2 Is sky blue? 20 2 22
3 Is world round? etc.

In this case, the formula for % of Yes would be: =B2/D2. This would give you a decimal point result such as 0.909091. Now if you want to make this look like a percentage in your spreadsheet, just do the following:
1) click on the cell where you have the division formula
2) clck on Format in the top menu bar
3) click on Cells
4) click on the Number tab (if you're not already there)
5) click on Percentage in the list of categories
6) click OK

To boil it all down to a simple principle, percentages are created in Excel by dividing the two numbers using a formula with "/" in it, and then formatting the result to look like a percentage instead of a decimal.

I might have misunderstood your question, and I have an idea of what else you might have been asking (and another slightly more complicated solution for it!), so please let me know if my first answer didn't hit the mark!

Good Luck!
