### Calculate percentage increase of a stock value?

If I buy a stock for $100.00 and it appreciates to $200.00, what is the best formula to calculate the % increase?

(200-100)/100

or

(200-100)/((200-100)/2)Calculate percentage increase of a stock value?

the first one gives you the right answer as "percentage increase". "1" (=100% as a decimal)

the second one is a "multiple" ie "2" / 200% its "doubled"

Your "increase" of 100 is the same (or 100%) of the amount you bought it for.

So the increase is 100%. An "increase" of 200% would be 300.

cheers and if you find that stock - let me know!!Calculate percentage increase of a stock value?

($200/$100 - 1)*100% = 100%

### How do you calculate the percentage discount?

Subtract the sale price from the regular price. Multiply your answer by 100%, and divide by the regular price. Example:

A leather jacket normally sells for $200. The sale price is $180. What's the % discount? OK, the discount is $20, so multiply that by 100% = 2000$%, then divide by the regular price of $200, and the answer is 10% (the dollar signs cancel each other).How do you calculate the percentage discount?

Put it in decimal form as 100ths and then multiply it times the price.

A 20% discount from $100.00 is shown as

100 X .20

= 20.00

= $20.00How do you calculate the percentage discount?

Here's what's easy for me because I hate math! I just do this in my head when I'm shopping.

Let's use an example for 30% off:

If it's $1, take off $0.30. If it's $10, take off $3. If it's $100, take off $30.

So if something is $26.99 and 30% off, Round to $27, and take $3 off for every $10, and $.30 off for every $1.

You can use this for any percentage- but I hope this answers your question, because I have no idea how to enter this on a calculator!campers black ops zombie maps

### Is there a way to calculate, or estimate, a GRE score from my percentage of correct answers?

I took a practice GRE on a CD-Rom that came with my Kaplan GRE prep book, but the results section of my practice GRE only told me the number of questions I answered correctly versus the number of questions I missed.

Can I use this information to calculate my GRE score, by 600 by my percentage of correct answers and adding that figure to 200?Is there a way to calculate, or estimate, a GRE score from my percentage of correct answers?

On the GRE website I found this:

I hope that helps.

You can also try typing "calculate GRE score" into Google or Yahoo and looking through those results.

Good luck on the actual exam!

### I would like to be able to calculate where I fall within my salary range as a percentage?

I am trying to calculate where I fall within my salary grade range as a percentage. For example: The range on my salary grade is from 70K to 120K. My salary is 108K. Where do I fall within my grade with respect to percentage? The HR dept uses the term "penetration" when explaining where one falls within his/her salary grade. Thanks!I would like to be able to calculate where I fall within my salary range as a percentage?

((your salary - lower range) * 100) / (upper range - lower range)

In your case:

your salary = 108000

lower range = 70000

upper range = 120000

((108000-70000) * 100)/(120000-70000)

38000*100/50000

= 76 percentile

((your salary - lower range) * 100) / (upper range - lower range)

In your case:

your salary = 108000

lower range = 70000

upper range = 120000

((108000-70000) * 100)/(120000-70000)

38000*100/50000

= 76 percentile

Windows manages available memory. There are api calls that return available memory. Your program need only call the appropriate api calls to get the total and available memory. Some languages have functions that return the results of these calls - check your manual.

Google things like: "windows available memory api call" for more detail.
