 Rise is £1. £1 as a percentage of original wage £6.50 = 100/6.50= 15.4% (to one decimal place) 23:15 Wed 11th Apr 2012 Question Author Many thanks factor thought it was around 15% but needed the caculation 23:18 Wed 11th Apr 2012 Yep, new figure over old figure times 100/1. Can remember that from 1960. 23:20 Wed 11th Apr 2012 you haven't had a pay rise since 1960 mike?!?!? ;o) 23:29 Wed 11th Apr 2012 I meant when I learned percentages at school! 23:33 Wed 11th Apr 2012 I guessed that mike hence the wink - a shallow attempt at humour at this time of the morning! 23:34 Wed 11th Apr 2012 The lack of a pay rise since 1960 being merely coincidental. Hey ! Come to think of it ......... ═══════════════ ═══════════════ ══════════ New Amount - Original amount = Change Change ∕ Original amount x 100% = Percentage Change ═══════════════ ═══════════════ ══════════ 08:32 Thu 12th Apr 2012 Hmmmm: one gets far fewer characters to the line than I imagined. 08:32 Thu 12th Apr 2012
