Isnt this a harder way of getting 25%?
100 / .8 = 125 (125 - 100 = 25)
100 x .25 = 25

typical response of drake. With everyone using XL spreadsheets, I don't think the question is how to do the math. but is what the percentage is.

15% over 10,000, and 20% on anything under.
If its asphalt work I will try to get min 20% just because there are almost always issues to deal with.

I made it pretty clear that it's 25%.

I use this way because it gives me the final number right away that I will be giving to the client. Less room for error in adding the 25% to the subs numbers. I am fine with either way though.

it must be quite a struggle for you to calculate the tip at the restaurant too

10000 x 1.15 = 11,500

Why all the math to figure something so simple?
