I'm lost there. If 100 apples 2012, and 50 on 2013
isn't it half sales? isn't 50% sales?
From Wikipedia: calculations. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percentage
For example, to find the percentage of 50 apples out of 1250 apples, first compute the ratio 50/1250 = .04, and then multiply by 100 to obtain 4%. The percent value can also be found by multiplying first, so in this example the 50 would be multiplied by 100 to give 5000, and this result would be divided by 1250 to give 4%.
My approach before applied here: (50x100)/1250 = 4%.
Lost because that's how we look at numbers here, even at the office, "sold only half this year". 100 clients yesterday, 50 today, that's half of yesterday, 50% of yesterday. Even what's X percentage of Y shows the same result by the percentage calculator. So if you have 1000 visitors per day 2012 and 500 on 2013, aren't you having half visitors? it's the same formula. BTW, diff country, not EEUU.
Sorry WebmasterWorld this is growing off topic. Better by PM if there is any continuation. Thanks both for the interest and time to do maths and not just saying.
