Ok. first things first, percent mens, out of 100. you simply replace the percent with fractions. say you have \$400. your workers get 20% of the money made each day. 20 out of 100=1/5 of 100.so your workers get 1/5 of the money which is 400 divided by 5 wich equals 80. i hope this helps. if you still have trouble, serch on the internet for the formula for calculating percent.

### What is the percentage increase from \$170000. to \$180000

The formula for percentage increase is always:

A2 - A1
--------- x 100
A1

Where A1 is the old amount and A2 is the new amount.

In this case A1 is \$170 000 and A2 is \$180 000.

Putting it into the formula, we get

180 000 - 170 000
----------------------- x 100
170 000

Let me know if you have any questions.

Good luck.

### 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 %
