    Exclamation Percentages

    Hi Guys

    I need help with working out percentages in java !!

    Say I have a field called [ Balance ]

    and I want to add 3.5% of what ever value is in the field balance to itself (i.e. add it back onto balance)

    How do I do it ?

    I'd greatly appreciate any help.

    Thanks

    Default

    balance = 30.00; // make this whatever you want
    ----now you can do this--------
    balance += balance * 0.035;
    ----OR THIS---------
    balance += balance * (3.5 / 100);
    --OR THIS----------
    percent = 3.5;
    balance += balance * (percent / 100);
    -----------------------
    Hope this helps.
