If you start with $20,000, and add 50%, you have $30,000.Originally Posted by'05 STiThe way this was phrased, $31,000 is a little over 50% more than $20,000. 1/3 more than $20,000 would be $26,600.Originally Posted by'05 STi

When calculating how much more something is, you take the percentage of the original number, and add it on. You start with $20,000. 50% of $20,000 is $10,000. Add that on, and you have $30,000. $30,000 is 50% more that $20,000. $40,000 is 100% more that $20,000.

When you start with $30,000, and divide into 3, $20,000 is 2/3 of $30,000.
