# Working With Percentages

Aug 20, 2008
I have a column of data with students marks ranging from zero to 78(S17:S74). I need to work out the mean score of the bottom 20% of all the scores achieved - Is this possible. I'm no expert so please keep it as simple as possible! I'm working with Windows XP and Excel 2002.

I have 100's of cells with various formulas similar to this: =U7*9.57. U7 Being the cell with the number of hours worked and 9.57 being the hourly rate. Fairly simple so far. Now there has been a 5% pay rise so unless i get another formula to add 5% on to all these cells i will have to manualy change each hourly pay to the correct value, something i dont want to do. So my question is can i do something like =U7*9.57 then another formula to add 5% on to the 9.57, then i can copy the formula down all the other cells?????

I need a formula to create the following:

In Cell F5 is 26, so the percentage should be 101% (100+1). How can I modify the below to add 1% when the number goes over 100%?

Do I have to create two columns? one for the below and one if the F6 is over 100%?

IF(F6="N/A","N/A",IF(F6>=25,1,IF(F6>=19,0.8,IF(F6>=13,0.6,IF(F6>=7,0.4,IF(F6>=1,0.2,IF(F6

I am monitoring the balance in my Allocated Pension fund, via the WWW.

In particular, I am recording the profits (disregarding costs, outflows, etc.) as ANNUALISED PERCENTAGES (a new line, for each week).

My formula is:

=(accumulated profits/principal)*(365/elapsed days)

Questions:

Will my formula remain valid, when “elapsed days” exceed 365?

If not, is there a FUNCTION that can handle my problem. And

What would the function’s ARGUMENTS be?

I'm sure this will be an easy calculation for most of you...........

If I have two numbers, ie. 390 and 217, how can I calculate the difference

between the two figures as a percentage? (These two figures represent sales

in two months and I need to know the difference in percentage terms).

I would like a way to use conditional formatting to highlight percentages that are over 50%. The problem is that I have other numbers in the same column that are not percentages but I would like to ignore them for highlighting purposes? Can this be done without sorting the columns?

eg.

345- ignore

Ken- ignore

2500- ignore

45.6%- do not highlight

65- ignore

92%- highlight

=IF(A2-B2,(B2/A2))

The simple formula above calculates percentage which basically in this example, 159-90 divded 159% which equals 56.60%. What i need the formula to recognize is if both the entries are 159 which should show 100%. Its to show error rates by the way. Percentage wise.

Am trying to do a formula to work out a percentage of one figure from another, cannot for the life of me think it through properly!

So in

Cell J73 I have the net income and in cells J75 +J77 I have the total outgoings.

I want a formula that works out the percentage outgoings, so if someone is earning £100 and they have £20 outgoings, that is 20% of their earnings.

I am trying to combine to cells containing percentages, however when I do the percentages turn into decimals. I have tried using the text funtion, but that just returns the full number 1, no decimals or percentages.

I work at a library and have been asked for help by the Asst. Director. The problem is, I have next to no Excel experience, just what I've been reading in the Help files and Online.

We are using Excel 2003 and running XP. Here is his predicament: he has an excel document that lists the books we have ordered from a publisher. Column I has the MSRP for the book and Column J has the discounted price for the book. We are trying to get Column L to show the percentage of the discount that we received. This is what i've come up with:

example for line 255 typed in as formula for L: =1-7.95/14.98

It comes out correct when I type in the formula as I show above, but when I try typing in the formula (as it should look:=1-J255/I255) , i get an error message: #VALUE! ...

I have a table of data with names across the top and number of weeks down the left. The table lists amounts of money those names earned during the respective weeks. It looks something like this:

Mike Dan Bill Carl

400 500 600 700

800 900 1000 800

700 600 500 400

In a seperate worksheet within the same workbook, I have 3 columns of data. The first column is a name. The second column is a criteria. In the third column, I am trying to look up the value of 8 specified weeks of earnings of the name I put in column 1 and multiply those earnings by a percentage based on the criteria in column 2. Then sum the products.

I have a table of the 8 percentages I am trying to apply. There are 7 different percentage applications.

So if I am looking up Mike's earnings during those 8 specified weeks and the criteria in column 2 is "B", then I want to apply the appropriate column of percentages to those 8 looked up earnings, Multply them and then Add them.

Up until now, I have been trying to use some hybrid of HLOOKUP, SUMPRODUCT, and IF.

I have data that I import from another source into excel and it pulls over like this

3866.00%

435.00%

125.00%

1254.00%

I want to remove the % since these aren't actually percentages, the report we pull from has them listed incorrectly and cannot be changed since it is software driven, not excel driven. The problem is simply remove the % changes the number to 38.66 instead of leaving it at 3866.

I have a row of formulas that calculates information into a percentage. As you input info, a percentage is created in the cell. Those cells that do not yet have information entered still show " DIV/0" or something like that.

I need a formula that will average all the percentages, but the problem is, it's trying to also average the formulas with the percentages, so I currently get an error.

Input cell: a number from 1 - 100

Output cell:

If input is 1, output is 5.5%

add 0.5% until 10.

add 1% from 11 - 20

add 1.5% from 21-30

add 2% from 31-40

keep adding 0.5% every 10, until 100

100 = 280%

I'm trying to get a scroll bar to change a percentage value. My percents are to the hundredth. I understand how to adjust the properties to get it to use whole numbers... but i am trying to adjust my smallchange by .01% and large change by .1%

is this possible? or is there a workaround for it? i've only ever used scroll bars for whole numbers.

I'm brand new to this forum, so please forgive me in advance. I am hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction. I got a request from my boss and it's something I've never done in Excel and far more advanced than anything I've tried to do.

In my spreadsheet, Columns B-BD are server names, and Rows 2-13 are program names. Inside the corresponding cells all have to display as percentages, and we are trying to display what percentage of each server is being used by each program. In Row 14, each column must total to be 100%. That part is easy, I already have that all setup.

However, the next step requires that each server is assigned a monetary value - one of two monetary values for Virtual or Physical server. Then, somehow I need Excel to calculate the monetary value for each percentage.

For example: if Column B is Virtual, and Row 14 totals up to equal 100%, it also equals $1,000. Say Cell B4 is equal to 50% and B5 is equal to 50%, each cell is also equal to $500. Easy enough in theory, but how should I execute this so that these cells stay in % format, but Column BE titled "Total Cost" displays the monetary value for each Program (row)?

I'm pretty sure there will be some kind of formula so I guess that's what I'm asking... how to calculate it?

I'll attach a screen shot to show you the gist of how it looks so far ...

I have two issues:

1, How do I calculate the original value of something if it has dropped say 9.3%

Ex Stock value 5.56 down 7.4%. How do I calculate its original value.

2, I have copied some numerical data from a website, on one computer when I drop that data into an excel sheet it falls into separate cells allowing me to manipulate it, on another computer I drop it into an excel spreadsheet and all the data goes into one cell not allowing me to manipulate it.

I was wondering is there a setting on one excel spreadsheet that I am inadvertantly not using on the other.

I am trying despeartely to finish this out. Here is the deal. I created a pivot table (see attached). The issue is that I need the numbers in the red boxes to be a percentage of the total number below - so the 2 should be a percentage of the 9 (22%) and the 3 should be 100% and the 7 should be 78%. I cannot seem to get this to work. Also, there are multiple rescue groups that need this and each needs to be the % of its own total number of animals.

I need to plot percentages over time in a line graph in excel. I don't want to have to do a percentage equation in the spreadsheet, I just want excel to take two sets of values and display the percentage in the chart. For example, I need B1 as a percentage of B2 for week 1, C1 as a percentage of C2 for week 2, etc....

We created the following spreadsheet at work:

Col A. Col B. Col. C. Col D

Names. Week 1. Week 2. Week 3

Angela. 1.171875

Mara. 1.127214

Linda. 2.552553

Margaret. -1.4157

Lisa 0.12432

Joy 1.109654

Winner. 2.552553

2nd place. 1.171875

3rd place. 1.127214

This is a chart recording the percentage of weight everyone loses each week. We input the weight and it calculates the percentage lost. My question is that I would like the names of the winner, 2nd place and 3rd place to transfer down to the bottom not the number. I was told its not possible.

I use a workbook that records data centered around course referrals.

The workbook also has a stats page. It records Instructor stats but needs to be in the form mostly of percentages.

In Column D within the page Stats I need the cells to show the total number of "YES" that each Instructor has achieved from their number of pupils in the Sheet Data.

Column E and F in Stats need to show the percentage of Yes and No of each Instructor from Column D in the Sheet Data.

Column G In Stats needs to show the number in total of Referrals made by Indivisual Instructors taken from Sheet Data.

Columns H,I and J in Stats need to show the percentage of referrals to OBT,Kaya and HWal made by the Individual Instructors taken from Sheet Data.

Finally in Stats, Columns K,L and M need to show the percentages for each Instructor of their Leave Reason again Taken from Sheet Data.

Usually there are several hundred entries and at the moment I do this manually with a calculator.

i have 4 worksheets with various names. i have an 5th worksheet with a named list (TabNames) of the 4 worksheet names

each of the 4 worksheets have cells with percentages in them.

i would like to check a cell from each sheet and see if the percentage is equal to or above a certain %, for example anything equal to or above 90%. then return the number of cells that meets or exceeds that 90% criteria.

so for example

sheet1 sheet2 sheet3 sheet4

A

1 80% 91% 76% 82%

2 80% 95% 92% 43%

so checking cell A1 in list TabNames would return 1, and checking cellA2 would return 2.

I have a very large grid of data, about 400Rx200C, which contains a lot of blank fields. All of this data is currently in values from 0-100 representing percentages, but not formatted as such. I need to make all of these values into Excel Percentages so naturally used Paste Special and Divide from a field with the value 100 in it and then simply format the cells as %.

However, this fills in all of the original empty cells with a 0.000% which I do not want, I need them to stay blank. And some of the cells that do have values also have 0.000% so I cannot just delete all of these values with a VBA script. I had been hoping the Skip Blanks option would do this, but it does not unfortunately.

I've hit a wall for the first time in my excel using career, I’ve searched the net high and low, asked the guys in my IT department and am so far stumped for a solution.

The problem is thus:

I have 3 columns, A, B and C.

Column A and B contain two numbers. Column A is "telephone calls offered" Column B is "Telephone calls Answered".

Column C is a calculation of the percentage of calls NOT answered. The formula I am using for this is =(A1-B1)/A1*1

This gives me a % as an answer.

Rows 1 to 66 are different time periods through out the day.

The problem is that for some fields, we don’t receive any calls, at all. Or we receive a call in one time period, and it is answered in another.

so Lets say cell A1 is 0, and Cell B2 is 3. Or A2 is 0 and B2 is 0.

How is it possible to get excel to display 0% if, after the calculation the value is < or = to Zero?

I have tried the below "IF" function but it returns a #Value error

=IF((A1-B1)/A*1<=0,"0%",(D67-E67)/D67*1)

I now leave it to the capable hands of the anonymous internet gods of excel
