What is formula to find percentage of females in my workplace?


      To get around this, you can calculate your numbers as percentages first. For example, if you type the formula =10/100 in cell A2, Excel will display the result as 0.1. If you then format that decimal as a percentage, the number will be displayed as 10%, as you 'd expect.Aug 2, 2011

How do you figure out the percentage of a budget


The percentage is simply 100 x (things you are interested in / total).
So for example the percentage of foodstuffs which go, with the other things to make up the household expenditure (budget) is
100 x (amount spent on food) / (total household spend), or
100 x (food budget) / (total household budget)

How to calculate the percentage using the excel



Hide All
Percentages are calculated by using the following equation:
amount/total = percentage
Where percentage is in decimal format.
What do you want to do?


Calculate the amount if you know the total and percentage For example, if you purchase a computer for $800 and there is an 8.9% sales tax, how much do you have to pay for the sales tax? In this example, you want to find 8.9% of 800.
Example The example may be easier to understand if you copy it to a blank worksheet.

  1. Create a blank workbook or worksheet.
  2. Select the example in the Help topic. Note Do not select the row or column headers.
    Selecting an example from Help
  3. Press CTRL+C.
  4. In the worksheet, select cell A1, and press CTRL+V.
  5. To switch between viewing the results and viewing the formulas that return the results, press CTRL+` (grave accent), or on the Formulas tab, in the Formula Auditing group, click the Show Formulas button.
1 2 A B Purchase price Sales tax (in decimal form) 800 0.089 Formula Description (Result) =A2*B2 Multiplies 800 by 0.089 to find the amount of sales tax to pay ($71.20) Note To convert a number in percentage format to a decimal, divide it by 100. For example, the sales tax in this example (8.9) divided by 100 is .089.
Calculate the percentage if you know the total and amount For example, if you score 42 points correctly out of 50, what is the percentage of correct answers?

The percent of 140 from 762.90 = ?


Sorry to say, soweeto54, but that question you've posted does not make much sense. It can be interpreted in three different ways, neither of which can be gleamed with much confidence. Yet I will still offer you three valid answers for your TI-83,

"The percent of 140 from 762.9 =". The troublesome part is the "from". Percents questions should be written in terms of "is" and "of".

TWO INTERPRETATIONS.

RESPONSE 1. The question could be read as "what percent of 762.9 is 140?". To do this on your calculator you simply do 140 divided by 762.9. From there, you simply move the decimal point two digits to the right to convert it into an equivalent percentage. So, that should be [1][4][0] [/] [7][6][2][.][9] [=] on your TI83. This was an example of a "percent of" question.

RESPONSE 2. The question could be read as "what percent of 140 is 762.9?" To have your TI83 calculate this you simply do 762.9 divided by 140. Of course, you will then need to move the decimal over two spots to the right in order to turn it into an equivalent percentage. Yes, it probably is strange to think of a number being more than 100 percent of another but it is a valid statement which occurs in the real world every single day. Nonetheless, for your TI83 you just press [7][6][2][.][9] [/] [1][4][0] [=]. This was another example of a "percent of" question. In fact, this is just the decimal reciprocal of the previous answer.

RESPONSE 3. The question could also be read as "140 from 762.9 will leave me with what percentage?" IE, 762.9 minus 140 will yield a number which is "x" percent of the original. Here, you would just do 762.9 minus 140, then you would take that answer and divide it by 762.9. From there, you'd do the old usual and move the decimal over two spots to the right for a percentage result. So, for your TI83 you'd do [(] [7][6][2][.][9] [-] [1][4][0] [)] [/] [7][6][2][.][9] [=]. Viola. This was an example of a "percent change" question. In fact, this is just the complement to response number one.

The total snowfall in Buffalo, NY one year was inches. If the total snowfall the following year was inches, what was the percent change? Show and explain your solution.


I don't see any numbers in your question, so let's assume the number of inches in the first year is x and the number of inches in the second year is y. The percentage change is the difference between the number of inches in the second year and the number of inches in the first year, divided by the total number of inches in the first year. This number (which is a fraction) needs to be expressed as a percentage. Algebraically:
y-x is the difference between year 2 and year 1 (can be positive or negative)
x is the total number of inches in year 1
so:
(y-x)/x is the change fraction
(y-x)/x * 100 is the change percentage.

For example, if x = 50 and y = 40 then:
(40-50)/50 * 100 = (-10)/50 * 100 = (-.2) * 100 = -20% = a 20% reduction in snowfall in yr 2 over yr 1.

You need to divide by three and multiply by .01 which will give you the average percetage or you need to divide the total by each entry and get invidual percentages
