Hi! There is an easy way to work this out.

100% of 14.99 is 14.99 (14.99 / 14.99 = 1)

So therefore 10% is a tenth of 1, which is 0.1

If you multiply 14.99 x 0.1 you get 1.499 (let's say 1.50)

Therefore you get 1.50 off the price. So with your 10% discount the item is now 13.49. If it helps knock off the odd penny and work to the nearest pound. 10% of 15 quid is 1.50 so the new price is 13.50. Easier to work out in your head when talking to the salesman...

IF i HAVE 100 CLAIMS AT WHAT PERCENTAGE IS THAT?


The percentage depends on how many total claims were filed. If you filed 100 claims and everybody else filed 100 claims, then the percentage of your claims is 50%. If everybody else filed 300 claims, the percentage is 25%.

As for the billing, we can't tell you anything without knowing at least whose billing you're referring to. Are you referring to some insurance company? A debt collection company? A gold mine registration agency?

Percentage change (increase or decrease)=(New value -Old value)/(Old value)*100%
If result is positive it is an increase. If result is negative it is decrease
For your case
% increase=28.298%=28.30%
Compare the definition above with the inflation measure and decide if they are the same.

What make the gross profit percentage increase


Gross profit =total revenue -cost of doing business
Gross profit percentage = Gross profit/(Total revenue.)*100%
To increase the gross profit percentage, you decrease the cost of doing business.
Costs= all you have to spend to be able to do business (merchandises, employees' pay, rent of facilities, electric bills, etc.)

Calculating Percent savings


Since I don't use the percent sign. Here is instead a MUCH easier way. Divide the price you bought it for (289) by the original price (648). This gives you the percentage that 289 is with respect to 648 if you just read off the first two decimal places. When you divide one number by another it will tell you how many times they 'fit' for the purpose of explaining it. That is also essentially what a percentage is out of 100 parts. so when you divide one number by another, you will get a decimal answer, just multiply it by 100 (or just take the first two decimals) and that is percent saved (percent different). Note that if the first value is LARGER than the second, you will have a percentage of over 100%.

The % of a discounted price


Lets say Your

MRP = 199
BESTSALE = 130

Now you want to calculate that howmuch percentage of BESTSALE i.e 130, will be added to get MRP i.e. 199.

If m right what do you want, then use the following formula:

Percentage = ((MRP/BESTSALE) - 1) x 100

In your case 199/130 = 1.5307....
So 1.5307 - 1 = 0.5307
Then 0.5307 x 100 = 53.07 %

Instructions on How To Use a Calculator


Ok I looked for ages for how these keys work and once you knwo how it is quite simple.

say something costs 100, enter 100 then press the cost button
say you want a margin of 25% then enter 25% and press the mgn button the result is the selling price 133.33

So to reverse it enter 133.33 press the sell button
Enter 25% and press the mgn button
result is 99.99 cost price (100) bar a cent/penny

and finally to work out margin

enter 100 press cost button
enter 133.33 press sell button
result is 24.99 which is the percentage margin

Simple isn't it
