How to work a % from the total number, eg: find the % if an item was sold for a discounted price of 130 and the asking price was 199

Ad

Im sure there is other ways to do this, here is a formula

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The formula is:

Orig. price - Sale price / Orig. price=%

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EX-1: $100-$50/$100=0.5 or 50%

(move decimal two places to the right)

I changed your sample equation to make an even percentage

If the sale price was $131.34 and the Orig. price was $199 the savings in percentage is 34%.

EX2: 199-131.34/199=0.34 34%

To test the equation multiply the % by the Orig. price:

0.34x199=67.66 (your savings) add your savings to the sale price

67.66+131.34=199

Hope this helps--wicc--

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 %

Thanks

- Divide 20 by 100 to convert 20 percent to the decimal 0.2.
- Multiply 0.2 by the price of the item to calculate the amount of the discount. For example, if the original price of the item equals $24, you would multiply 0.2 by $24 to get $4.80.
- Subtract the value of the discount from the original price to find the price of the item after the discount. In this example, you would subtract $4.80 from $24 to find the price after the discount to be $19.20.

I've never seen this happen. Make sure the discount buttons have been set up for tax as well as departments and PLUs

Ah, word problems! The trick is to convert the given information into two equations in two unknowns. Let's let S be the number of solid color rolls sold, and P be the number of print rolls.

The first equation is easy:

(eq. 1): S + P = 480

We're given that information: the total number of rolls sold. For the second equation, use the given price information ($4/roll for the plain, $6/roll for the print).

(eq. 2): 4S + 6P = 2340

Again, we're given the total sales, and we know how much each kind costs.

Now it's just some basic algebra. Let's rearrange equation 1 to get S by itself:

S = 480 - P

Then use that value in equation 2, and solve for P:

4S + 6P =2340

4(480 - P) + 6P = 2340

1920 - 4P + 6P = 2340

2P = 420

P = 210

Now we know that the MLHS band sold 210 rolls of print paper, which means they sold 270 rolls of solid. You can your answers in the original equations. If they are the right values, both equations will work out.

270 + 210 = 480, eq. 1 is right.

(4 x 270) + (6 X 210) = 1080 + 1260 = 2340, eq. 2 checks.

The first equation is easy:

(eq. 1): S + P = 480

We're given that information: the total number of rolls sold. For the second equation, use the given price information ($4/roll for the plain, $6/roll for the print).

(eq. 2): 4S + 6P = 2340

Again, we're given the total sales, and we know how much each kind costs.

Now it's just some basic algebra. Let's rearrange equation 1 to get S by itself:

S = 480 - P

Then use that value in equation 2, and solve for P:

4S + 6P =2340

4(480 - P) + 6P = 2340

1920 - 4P + 6P = 2340

2P = 420

P = 210

Now we know that the MLHS band sold 210 rolls of print paper, which means they sold 270 rolls of solid. You can your answers in the original equations. If they are the right values, both equations will work out.

270 + 210 = 480, eq. 1 is right.

Patty,

The price for this item is based on the supplier you purchase them from as Fix Ya.com does is not a plumbing supplier. It is doubtful that you will get much of a discount on the items due to the low volume however some suppliers in the states may offer such discounts You would have to work with them directly to ascertain that and shipping to your location. If you need the name of a supplier that handles that item let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Pusedo is as follows

/get the cost of them items and add it to the total

when no onter items are found exit loop

if there are items continue loop //

item = y

total = 0

do while item = y

total = item + total

get cost of new item

if cost = 0 then item = n

loop

Print "BILL TOTAL = " + total

// minus discount

enter discount amt (in %) as da

discount = (da/100) * total

total = total - da

Print "DISCOUNT = " + discount

Print "new total " + total

//add vat

vat = (12/100) * total

total = total + vat

Print "VAT " + vat

Print "new Total " + total

//get pay

enter amt paid as amt

change = amt - total

Print "Paid " + amt

Print "change " + change
