Hi ,

Please help me with this problem :

I whoul like to change the precent from *1.17 (17%) to calc of precent like this :

3% + 5% + 5$ = Result

For example :

The resault is 10$ - i want to write in code instead *1.17 :

10$ +3%(0.3$) + 0.5% (0.51$) + 5$ = 15.81$

How i change this line to this calc

if(results[i].getSite()=='Xxx'&&XPrice==0)
{
XPrice =(results[i].getPrice() *1.17);
}
}


Please help me with this is very iportant to me

Thank you so much !

*1.17

is 117 percent of.

The % symbol in javascript means modulo (remainder after division by a number). If you don't want a modulo, don't use it. For percent, multiply by the decimal.

This question is extremely unclear. At first, I was preparing myself to look up some Java syntax. Before anyone can begin answering this question, you need to restate it in a way that makes it comprehensible and valid (grammatically and logically). Provide us with a few input/output fields so we know what you're talking about and specify exactly what you want.

@John Maybe he's trying to add 17%?

I think John hit it: the code works as desired but the OP doesn't like the syntax (he wants to specify the percentages with a % sign, which, as John points out, does something else entirely).

OP:


price * 1.08 + 5; //Multiply the code by 100% + 5% + 3% (1.08), then add 5
