Percentages - Reversing a Percentage Calculation?

Hi Guys,

I have a trade price  of an item, for example £30.00.

When we buy this item, the supplier gives us a discount of 10%

The Gross Trade Price is then £27.00 (30.00 - 10%)

This is my problem, I need to calculate the Trade price if the supplier only tells us the Gross Trade Price.

My Question is, how do i get the value of £30.00 from the values £27.00 and 10% ??

i.e. 10% of 27 is 2.7 ... not 3!

Thanks Experts!

trade_price = gross_trade_price * 100 / (100 - percentage)

Or for your example :

        trade_price = 27 * 100 / (100 - 10) = 30
