Adding a percentage to a number is easy and useful for finding an increased value. Let's learn how to do it step by step!
When you add a percentage to a number, you're increasing that number by a certain portion of itself. It's like applying a markup to a product price!
You'll need two things: the original number and the percentage you want to add. For example:
To use percentages in calculations, convert the percentage to a decimal by dividing by 100:
Decimal=Percentage / 100
In this example: Decimal=15 / 100=0.15
Next, multiply the original number by the decimal to find the amount to add:
Amount to Add=Original Number × Decimal
In our example: Amount to Add=200 × 0.15=30
Finally, add the calculated amount to the original number to find the new, increased value:
New Value=Original Number + Amount to Add
In this case: New Value=200 + 30=230
Formula is =A2+(A2*B2/100), where A2 is the number, and B2 is the percentage.
Scenario: You're buying a product that costs $50, and the sales tax is 8%.
Calculation: Add 8% to $50.
$50 × 0.08=$4 (Amount to Add)
$50 + $4=$54 (Total Price)
Result: After adding 8% sales tax, the total price is $54.
Scenario: You received a 5% raise on your annual salary of $40,000.
Calculation: Add 5% to $40,000.
$40,000 × 0.05=$2,000 (Amount to Add)
$40,000 + $2,000=$42,000 (New Salary)
Result: After the raise, your new annual salary is $42,000.
Scenario: You found a pair of shoes for $80, and the store offers a 25% discount.
Calculation: Subtract 25% from $80.
$80 × 0.25=$20 (Amount to Subtract)
$80 - $20=$60 (Discounted Price)
Result: After the 25% discount, the price of the shoes is $60.
Scenario: You invested $10,000 in a fund, and it grows by 12% over the year.
Calculation: Add 12% to $10,000.
$10,000 × 0.12=$1,200 (Amount to Add)
$10,000 + $1,200=$11,200 (New Value)
Result: After one year, your investment is worth $11,200.
Scenario: You bought a product for $150 and want to sell it with a 30% markup.
Calculation: Add 30% to $150.
$150 × 0.30=$45 (Amount to Add)
$150 + $45=$195 (Selling Price)
Result: After adding a 30% markup, the selling price is $195.
