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 %

If a video game is $80 and it is on sale for $68 what is its discount?


15%. Here's how: The game is selling for $68 instead of the regular $80 price or 68/80 (sixty-eight eightieths) of full price. 68 divided by 80 = .85 which is 85%. This means $68 represents 85% of $80. 100(%) - 85(%) = 15(%) That means that $68 is a 15% discount from $80.

Check the work by multiplying 80 by 15% (80 x .85) = 68.

How do I calculate the mod function in my casio fx 100ms model


It seemed there is no Modulo function in fx-100MS. But Mod is just the remainder of a division operator.

So if you have A mod B = C, divide A by B, subract the remaining whole number, and multiply it by B to get C.

Example:

7 mod 4 = 3

In the Calculator:

7 / 4 = 1.75, then 1.75 - 1 = 0.75. Then 0.75 x 4 = 3

HOW DO I CALCULATE STANDARD DEVIATION FOR CALCULATOR T1-30XA


Hi dear friend,
I am providing it with an example.

76281c5.jpg
- I am sorry that the instructions from the maker of the calculator on how to calculate a standard deviation fell short of your expectations. All you have to do is follow them key stroke for key stoke, but enter your own data. If a number is repeated 3 times like the number 55, you can enter it 3 times or use the shortcut in the exemple
55 [2nd][FREQ]3 [Sigma+].
If you make a mistake and enter the wrong number, use the [Sigma-] key to remove it. That is similar to what a cashier does when an item is entered twice: it is entered a third time but with minus sign.
Every time an item is entered, the display shows the total number of items so far. When it is finished the cashier press the key that sums up the prices to get the total. This is the role of the [2nd][Sigma X] key combination.
The average number of the data is obtained by the [2nd][x bar] combination. The last two key combinations display the two type of deviations.
I hope this will help you. Please vote for me.

Thanks in advance.

Tax-


The Tax- function allows you to take the total cost (sub-total + tax) and it will subtract the tax and leave you with the sub-total (before tax).

Example:

If the item you have is $5 and the tax is set to 5%... when you use the Tax+ key it'll give you 5.25.

Conversely, when you enter 5.25 and press the Tax- key and it will give you the base price of $5.

So the Tax- key removes the tax from the total amount.
It doesn't remove the percentage OF the total amount.

Percentages


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...
