I have a known final number. Lets say that is 100. Also I have a percentage difference between original two number. That is number 1 was 10% more than number 2. How do I find the two numbers. I want to do this for a lot of numbers. So any general formula for this would be helpful. Basically I need to find the two numbers that are 1 number is 10% higher than other number but there sum has to equal to 100.
$\begingroup$ Is this really a stats question? It seems like a plain mathematics question. As the tag says, it's arithmetic. $\endgroup$– Glen_bJul 15, 2021 at 10:13
y=100 x1=1.1*x2 #110% of x2 x2=? y=x1+x2 100=1.1*x2+x2 100=2.1*x2 100/2.1=x2 47.61905=x2 #circa x1=1.1*x2 x1=47.61905*1.1 x1=52.38096 #circa
seems maybe correct ^^
numbers are circa, but equations should be good
