## Dollar Percentage Calculator OR # Dollar Percentage Calculator

Arguably the most important tool in your pocket for the day! This calculator tells you exactly how much money you will make, given a certain amount of risk and reward. It's also handy for figuring how much you should invest in stocks, how much you should borrow, or how much you shouldn't spend on a certain purchase.

### Example

The percentage increase calculator above computes an increase or decrease of a specific percentage of the input number. It basically involves converting a percent into its decimal equivalent, and either subtracting (decrease) or adding (increase) the decimal equivalent from and to 1, respectively. Multiplying the original number by this value will result in either an increase or decrease of the number by the given percent. Refer to the example below for clarification. (Source:

The concept of percent increase is basically the amount of increase from the original number to the final number in terms of 100 parts of the original. An increase of 5 percent would indicate that, if you split the original value into 100 parts, that value has increased by an additional 5 parts. So if the original value increased by 14 percent, the value would increase by 14 for every 100 units, 28 by every 200 units and so on. To make this even more clear, we will get into an example using the percent increase formula in the next section. (Source: www.omnicalculator.com)

### Need

For a percentage problem in which you need to find the percentage, a question may be posed as the following: "What percent of 5 is 2?" In this example, you will need to determine in a percentage how much of 2 is part of the whole of 5. For this type of problem, you can simply divide the number that you want to turn into a percentage by the whole. So, using this example, you would divide 2 by 5. This equation would give you 0.4. You would then multiply 0.4 by 100 to get 40, or 40%. Thus, 2 is equal to 40% of 5.

Money Example: Money's real worth is lost over time and it's no secret money you have now is constantly losing value. What you could buy with \$5 about 25 years ago you will need about \$21 to buy now. Use our online percent growth calculator below - fill in 5 in first box and 21 in second, the answer will shock you, it's 320%! Abe Lincoln would be proud - he's the President on \$5 dollar bill.
