Precentage Calculated

Wednesday, August 5, 2009 |
You guys are AWESOME! Our inbox has been FLOODED with your show and tell pictures! We are so proud of you guys! Most of you also want to know how to figure out the percentage you are saving.
(I can't believe I am making a post about math! Math was my least favorite and most difficult subject for me in college! I saved my math classes for very last! I guess this is simple enough!)

Here is how you would figure it out:

I spent $36.98
I saved$ 212.98

1) Take both numbers and add them together: $249.96
2) Divide the number you spent by the sum of both numbers( 36.98/249.96) : 0.1479
3) Now take that number (14) and minus it from 100: 86
4) That makes it an 86% savings!
I know there are other ways to figure it out too, I just have found this way the easiest for me.

I'm sure you already know this, but you can eliminate steps #2 and #3 altogether by just taking the amount saved, divided by the total (both numbers added together) Much quicker. :) HTH!

Yes, thank you! I don't know why I like the long way, but I guess I like to make easy things complicated all the time.
