    Percentage increases between two numbers - then applying that percentage to another cell

    Have a feeling there might be an easy answer to this but struggling with the last part.

    Currently I have two values
    COLUMN A_new ....- ....COLUMN B_old
    13.31........................ 12.34


    I've used this formula to calculate percentage increase:
    =(New Price-Old Price)/Old Price



    Which gives me a percent difference of 7.86%

    However I want to then apply a percentage increase of 7.86% to another cell which currently shows 26.00

    If I use this formula: =SUM(O3+N3) (with O3 holding the 7.86% answer and N3 having the value I need to amend), it works out as 26.08.

    But increasing 26 by 7.86% should equal 28.04


    Thank you for any help in advance

    Try this:

    =26*(1+7.86%)

    sounds like you want to use: =N3*(1+O3)

    try it this way ...=(1+O3)*N3 assuming O3 has the 7.86% and N3 has the 26.00
