# Couponers... A ?

member

Do you know how you figure out the percentage saved on your grocery bill?

For instance my bill today came to \$59 and I saved \$29 (So the 59 was after saving 29). So how can I figure out what percentage I saved? I'd like to start a chart and track my savings every week but I don't know how.

TIA

59+29=88  29/88=0.329  so you saved 33%  Good job!

This is really a MATH question, not so much a coupon question.

Since you saved 29, and spent 59 - I added those two numbers together to get 88.

I divided 29 into 88 and got .329 which would mean (after rounding) that you saved about 33%.

I'm pretty certain that is how you'd figure it, but someone feel free to jump in and tell me I'm wrong.

• 29=x% of 88 is the formula, and 'of' = multiplication in math

so,

29=x% X 88 ,,,

29/88=x%

33% is correct
