I cross multiply 832372 / 876977 = X / 100

or 832372 X
---------- = ------------- = 100 X 832372 = 876977 X
876977 100

= 94.91 % That is a decrease so i turned the numbers upside down and tried again and got 1.05%

The Casio MS-80TV requires you to input percentage calculations differently than other calculators. To calculate percentage change addition for this example, you must input "12000X20%+", for subtraction, you must input "12000x20%-".

Sorry, but you cannot calculate percentages at the pressing of a key. The calculator does not have a key for that. You will have to do it yourself.
To convert a decimal result to a percentage, multiply it by 100: MOVE the decimal mark two places to the right.
To convert a percentage into a decimal number, divide the number by 100: MOVE the decimal mark two places to the left.

### When an amount is increases by 15% it becomes \$117300. Find rthe original amount.

Your problem is that of percentage increase.

To calculate that, this is what you do:

Initial amount (Initial amount * percentage) = Percentage increase.

Let us call the initial amount, x.

Then our parameters are:
Initial amount = x
Percentage = 15/100
Final amount = 117300

So,
x (x * 15/100) = 117300
x (15x/100) = 117300
(x/1) (15x/100) = 117300
(100x 15x)/100 = 117300
115x/100 = 117300

cross multiplying
115x * 1 = 117300 * 100
115x = 11730000

dividing both sides by 115

115x/115 = 11730000/115
x = 102000.

So the original amount was \$ 102000.

Have a wonderful day.

A percentage increase from a value a to a value b is defined as
Percent increase=(b-a)/a*100 percent.
In your case it is (200-70)/70=1.857. Multiply this number by 100 and append the percent symbol. Thus increase=185.7 percent or about 186 percent.
