A1 enter 150

B1 enter 10

C1 enter A1/B1

That's not quite right as if you needed 50%, and put 150/50 you get 3 and not 75.

For the formula..

A1 - £150

A2 - 100

A3 - The percent you want to calculate ie 10 in this case

A4 - =A1*(A3/A2)

Remember to type the equals sign..

The easiest way however is to put

A1 - £150

A2 - Percent you want to calculate

A3 - =A1*A2

But, select Cell A2 and then on the formatting bar at the top of the worksheet, click on the % button.
