Multiplication factor


If, for example, there is an increase of 10% to a certain value, we can calculate the new value just by multiplying that value by 1,10, which is the multiplication factor. If the increase is 20%, we multiply by 1,20, and so on. See other examples in the table below:

Increase or ProfitMultiplication factor
10%1,10
15%1,15
20%1,20
47%1,47
67%1,67

Example: Increasing 10% in the amount of $ 10.00 we have: 10 * 1.10 = $ 11.

In case there is a decrease, we will have:

Multiplication Factor = 1 - Discount Rate (in decimal form)

See examples in the table below:

DiscountMultiplication factor
10%0,90
25%0,75
34%0,66
60%0,40
90%0,10

Example: Discounting 10% of R $ 10,00 we have: 10 * 0,90 = $ 9.00
