This trick will blow your mind.. I’m actually ashamed I’m just learning this now.
Imagine the stress this trick would have saved me..
Well, the key is flipping the numbers around.
Did you ever imagined that:
X percent of Y is equal to Y percent of X
I bet you are just realizing this too..
So 16% of 50 is the same as 50% of 16, and this trick works with any two numbers.
With this example, 50% of 16 which is 8, is a lot easier to work out off the top of your head than 16% of 50.
Now you can spread the trick.
