What do you expect the answer to be? If you want to subtract 45% of the value of 27.95 from 27.95 then in Excel that would be

=27.95*(1-0.45)

to give 15.37

I imagine that'll work in iwork too

regards, barry

If you use

=27.95-45%

In excel  then that treats 45% like 0.45 and the answer you get is 27.5, I assume that isn't the expected result....or is it?
