1. ## Add a percent to a dollar amount HELP!

I've been sitting here forever trying to figure out how write the formula to add a percent to a dollar amount.
\$26.24 is in L46 and I need to add 19% to that. I've tried =L46+19% but it reads it as \$0.19 and returns a value of \$26.43 instead of \$31.23. Can anyone help?????

=L46*1.19

Try =L46+(19%*L46)
