I'm brain dead on a Friday afternoon and a little embarrassed with this.

I have a starting number xxx  i.e. 178 and need to reserve 60% of this and show the remaining balance 71.

Need a quick percentage formula.

the reserve is
X% of total
 ie 60% of 178
= 106.8

so onece you have either reserve or balance you can subtract from the total to calculate the other
