# Percentages

Hello All!

I can't remember how to utilize percentages in Excel.

For example, I have 10 dummy clients, 2 dummy clients have viral load results equal to or less than 20....

I know basic math would be 2/10 * 100 = 20 (20%)

So I Excel, I entered this in a cell: =2/10*100

And I got 20....

How else can I calculate this in Excel?

 CLIENT FIRST NAME CLIENT LAST NAME VIRAL LOAD RESULT JOHN DOE <20 JANE DOE <20 PETER DOE 51 JOAN SMITH 55 MARIA JOHNSON 60 DEAN DOE 65 JANET DOE 70 JEAN THOMAS 75 DAVID JONES 80 ANA AVILA 85 TOTAL CLIENTS 10 PERCENT OF CLIENTS WITH VIRAL LOAD EQUAL TO OR LESS THAN 20 20

Hello Manny
Could John and Jane's Viral Load Results be absolute numeric values instead of "<20"?

Yes, an absolute number (20) could be used...

Hello Manny

Assuming your Results are in column C, then this formula is worth a try: =COUNTIFS(C2:C11,"<=20")/COUNT(C2:C11)
