How do you calculate 10 percent off a product?
To calculate the amount you save if something is 10% off move the decimal one place to the left. A hat that was $20, and is marked 10% off, means you will save $2. The new price woud then be $18,but your question seems to be interested in the amount saved, not the final amount paid.Other examples:$25, means save $2.50$700, means save $70$32.40 means save$3.24and so on
How do I calculate percentile and how it is different from percentage?
Percentage is what we have been calculating our entire lives. It is absolute.Percentage = (your marks/total marks) x 100For example, if in an exam of 100 marks, you scored 90, then your percentage would be 90%.Basically your percentage is irrelevant of how the other students have fared in the same exam and it is just a reflection of how well you did individually.However, percentile is a little different as it is relative. Here the scores of the other students in the same exam is very important to how we calculate a person’s percentile as it gives you the idea of how good/bad you did in an exam.If I had to summarize percentile in a formula (which will help you calculate the same for any competitive exam that you need),Percentile = (number of people behind you/total number of people) x 100For example, if in a class of 100 students, you topped the exam. So what this means is that your score is better than 99 people and hence your percentile is 99%ile. Again, if your rank had been 30th, that means your score is better than 70 people and hence your percentile is 70%ile.Thus in percentile, the number of people whose score is below you or the number of people your score is better than is your percentile.I have also covered the same (with a few more examples) in a video whose link I have shared below and while the name of the video might indicate that it could be inclined towards MBA competitive exams, the concept remains the same and is valid for any competitive exam that you appear for.Hope this helps.
What is 40 percent off of $5.00?
Firstly, you need to find out what 40% OF 5 is. To find that, you simply multiply .40 by 5. Notice I say point 40 (.40). This is because to convert a percent to a decimal, you take the invisible point that is at the end of the number (if you don't see one somewhere) and move it two places to the left. So 40% is really 40.%, if you will (although you'd never put the point after the number if nothing is following the point, such as 40.05%). Which becomes, again, .40 as a decimal. SO, .40 * 5.00 (or simply 5) = 2.00 NOTE: If you multiply 5 * 40 you get 200. But you have to put the point where it belongs. So looking at the 40 you see the decimal two places to the left of the 40 (cause its .40) and looking at the 5 you'll see the point is no places to the left of it, it's already to the right of the 5. So you have only 2 decimal places to account for. So you move the invisible decimal two places, in this case, to the left of 200 which becomes 2.00. You're not done. All you have to do now that you know 40% of 5, you subtract that answer from the 5.00 (or $5.00) because you want to know what 40% OFF of 5.00. So 5.00 - 2.00 = 3.00. 40% off of 5.00 is 3.00. Your answer is $3.00
I was offered a position in Dublin, Ireland for an annual salary of €40,000, plus benefits. Is this a good salary for Dublin?
I think this is a reasonable income to live in Dublin. You won't be rich, but you will be pretty comfortable and still be able to have fun. Inner city Dublin is expensive to rent in, but you can get a studio or small 1 bdrm for about 1000-1200/mth. If you don't mind sharing, then this will significantly reduce your rental costs. You will probably spend about 50 to 70 euro/mth on electricity and about 35/mth on internet. Living in shared accommodation and sharing this cost will greatly reduce this.Save money by not getting paid TV (way overpriced) or look at getting netflix or just watch the Public Irish tv.Groceries will be about 70 euro/week (plus extra if you are eating out).Water charges about 20/mthEating out can be expensive in Dublin, but this income should allow you to still go out (within limits of course) and enjoy yourself if you stick to the more reasonably priced ones.If you can bring your own mobile phone - that would be much cheaper than buying one on a plan in Ireland. You can expect to pay about 15euro/mth on a prepay mobile plan that includes data.You won't need to buy a car in Dublin - there is limited parking anyway and it takes forever to drive anywhere in the city. Just hire one when you want to go on a trip or get around on public transport. Taxi's are pretty cheap too.You should still be able to afford to do some travelling on this salary - Ryanair has flights to lots of great destinations for cheap.Dublin is a great place to live, and yes it is expensive and the pay is low, but pretty much most of Europe is like that.

If 20,000 is 3.5% of an amount. How do I calculate the original amount?
20,000 is 3.5% of an amount20,000 = 3.5% x AMOUNTFirst of all, we can’t use percentages in a calculation. We need to convert the percentage to its decimal equivalent. To do this, we divide the percentage by 100.3.5% = 3.5/100 = 0.035So our formula becomes20,000 = 0.035 x AMOUNTNext we need to isolate the AMOUNT variable on one side of the equal sign. In this case, we divide both sides of the equation by 0.03520,000/0.035 = (0.035 x AMOUNT/0.035)571,428.57 = AMOUNT (rounded off to two decimal points)
