    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%. :hammerhead:

    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 :dancing:

    10000 x 1.15 = 11,500

    Why all the math to figure something so simple?
