Or you can go for cost(1.375). That will add up 37.5% of the cost to the original cost.

### How to work out percentage of items

The concept of "percentage difference" depends upon what you use as your comparator, or the "base" amount.

Suppose the 8.50 value is entered in cell B3 and 4.80 is entered in cell C3.

To compute what percentage you'd save (off the higher price) if you buy from the cheaper supplier, you could enter into cell D3 a formula like: =(B3-C3)/B3
This would result in a numeric value of 0.435294, meaning you'd save about 43.53% off the higher price. In this case, your "base" amount is \$8.50.

Alternatively, if you used the lower price as the "base", then you could use a formula like: =B3/C3
This would result in a numeric value of 1.770833, meaning the higher price is 177.08% of the lower price, so it costs about 77% more.

### Formula for converting fractions into percentage.

Simplest method
1. divide the top of the fraction by the bottom
2. Then multiply the result by 100
3. add a percent sign to the answer so people know it is a percentage (i.e. per 100)
• e.g. 3/5 *100 = 0.6 * 100 = 60%

Alternative method Since percent means "per 100", you can try to convert the faction to the form ?/100
1. find a number that you can multiple the bottom of the fraction by to get 100
2. multiple both top and bottom of the fraction by that number
3. write down just the top number with the % sign added to the end
• e.g. 3/5 as a percentage
1. we can multiply 5 x 20 to get 100
2. multiple top and bottom by 20 = (3*20)/(5*20) = 60/100 = 60%

I hope this helps and good luck! If you have more questions - ask away! Please take the time to rate this answer.

### What is the formula to find the percent between two numbers. example: nuts cost .233 last year and this year nuts increased to .332 what is the percentage increase.

Divide .332 by .233, multiply by 100, then subtract 100.

Alternatively, since the increase in price was .099, divide .099 by .233 then multiply by 100.

### Add 20% uplift price to a pricelist in an excel spreedsheet

lets say you have the column B with the prices. Got to column C right beside the first price cell (I'll take B2 as first cell for example) which is C2 and type
=1.2*B2

Copy this formula in the column C all the way down to the last price Cell. That will give you all the updated prices.

Before you delete the column B where all your old prices are you need to do one more thing. Select the entire C column (new prices) go to edit and click on copy. Before you click anywhere else go back to edit and click on paste special and select value. This will change the formula cell you have created a minute ago to a value cell. Now you can delete the old prices. Good luck :)

### Formula for a percentage of something

the formula would be as follows:

X + Y%(X) = Z or 176.37 + .128(176.37)=198.95

If you were going to do this in MS Excelit would be:

assume 176.37 is in A! and the .128 is in A2 and the total will be in A3

A1 + A2(A1) = A3

Remember to multiply by percent, first divide the percent by 100

5% would be .05

Hope this helps

### Percentages in Excel

No problem, Melinda, I am here to help!

A B C D
1 Question Yes No Total
2 Is sky blue? 20 2 22
3 Is world round? etc.

In this case, the formula for % of Yes would be: =B2/D2. This would give you a decimal point result such as 0.909091. Now if you want to make this look like a percentage in your spreadsheet, just do the following:
1) click on the cell where you have the division formula
2) clck on Format in the top menu bar
3) click on Cells
4) click on the Number tab (if you're not already there)
5) click on Percentage in the list of categories
6) click OK

To boil it all down to a simple principle, percentages are created in Excel by dividing the two numbers using a formula with "/" in it, and then formatting the result to look like a percentage instead of a decimal.

I might have misunderstood your question, and I have an idea of what else you might have been asking (and another slightly more complicated solution for it!), so please let me know if my first answer didn't hit the mark!

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 %
