Hey Folks,

Just starting out with vb.net and am struggling with an equation

I have a fixed percentage 0.3%

I need to multiply this by a number of months which varies 1 to 12

Having done this I need to add the percentage to a pre-determined number

so as an example

£300 + (0.3 * 10)

I can get the 3% (0.3 * 10)

But when I add this to the existing number (£300) it equals £303 not £309 which is what it should equal.

Can anyone advise the way of adding a percentage as appose to just another number? This also need to allow for -percentages i.e. -3%

The equation I am using is below and I appreciate there is nothing to set decTotalPercentage as an actual percentage but that's because I am stumped...

decTotalPercentage = decPercentage * intMonths

decFinalPercentage = decMoney + decTotalPercentage
