% Help with working out percentages
« on: 14 September, 2009, 03:24:00 pm »
I'm really having a thick day ??? 
I'm trying to work out percentages and can't remember the formula for some reason, dunno why just can't. Was only using it last week.

Example: total weight = 232.53
        weight retained = 122.88
  percentage retained = 52.84%

And i just cannot remember how to get there.

Please no snide comments, i know it is simple but as has been stated my brain just isn't working. :-[

(122.88 divided by 232.53) x 100 = the percentage.

your result divided by possible result, x 100

EDIT: Beaten to it - how come everyone types much faster than me??  ???

It's worse than that Nutkin. I had time to type that out, then edit the brackets in!
