The Add Percentage calculator adds a specified percentage, y, amount to an original amount, x.

Instructions:

• Insert the desired value for x, the original amount to be increased by a percentage
• Insert the desired value for y, the additional percentage to increase x
• Choose the units for (default is percent, but a real number or decibel amount can also be chosen to add to the original amount)
• The result will then be returned

EXAMPLE:

If you have some value you want to increase by a percentage, you are in essence performing the following:

Result = x + (y/100 * x) = x * (1 + y/100)

As an example 17,035 increased by 4.5% would be:

Result = 17035 * (1 + 4.5/100) = 17035 *1.045 = 17801.575
