Formula for Calculation

To subtract a percentage from a number, use the following formula:

Result = Original number - (Original number * (Percentage / 100))


If the original number is 1000 and you want to subtract 20%, the formula will look like this:

Result = 1000 - (1000 * (20 / 100)) = 1000 - 200 = 800

This formula allows you to quickly and accurately subtract a percentage from any number.
