Because who can remember if it's times or divide?

You can do calculations with pure percentages:

10% + 20% | 30%

90% − 40% | 50%

And you can add/subtract decimals & fractions to/from percentages. 1.0 is equivalent to 100%.

30% + 0.4 | 70%

100% - 1/2 | 50%

100% + 2 + 30% | 330%

Note that when multiplying a percentage by a number, the answer will always be a number (not a percentage), regardless of order:

50% × 30 | 15

30 × 50% | 15

The percentage in any of the aforementioned functions can also be replaced with a fraction:

2/3 of 600 | 400

50 is 1/5 of what | 250

You can also use "x", "multiple" or "multiplier" instead of percentage:

50 as x of 5 | 10x

2 as multiplier of 1 | 2x

2 as multiplier on 1 | 1x

1 as x off 2 | 0.5x

Multiplier change from one number to another

50 to 75 is what x | 1.5x

20 to 40 as x | 2x
