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
