Hello can you help me please.

 

Firstly I hope I make sense, and hope that I'm asking  this correctly.

 

I have a value of £570.00 to which I am going to increase by £62.39. How do I work out the value of the increase as a percentage in excel or even just as an equation please

@AlisonAMK

 

The formula for the increase is simply

 

=62.39/570

 

or, if 570 is in A1 and 62.39 is in B1:

 

=B1/A1

 

Format the cell with the formula as a percentage.
