## 2 Examples to Calculate Percentage of Percentage in Excel

### Example 1: Calculate Percentage of Percentage from Raw Data

Suppose we have population data from a consensus where the percentage of **Males **and **Children **are provided separately. In this method, we will explain how to find the percentage of percentage to figure out number of male children in that population.

**📌**** Steps:**

- Add a new column in
**column F**, and name that**Male Child Nos**.

- To find out the value of the number of
**Male Child**we will enter the following formula in**cell E5**:

`=C5*D5*E5`

Here,

**C5*D5**= Population x Male Percentage = Male Population

**(C5*D5)*E5**= Male Population x Child Percentage = The number of boys in the population

- Now we will drag down the fill handle to complete the series.

- Finally, we got the number of male children by using the percentage of a percentage.

### Example 2: Calculate Percentage Increase or Decrease from Percentage Data

In order to make comparisons with our previous data, we usually calculate a relative increase or decrease in the value that is represented in the form of a percentage, the data gets clearer to understand.

**📌**** Steps:**

- Assume we have a store’s monthly profit data where the percentage of increase or decrease is determined.
- First, let’s calculate the amount of shared profit with the following formula in
**cell E5**:

`=C5*E5`

- Then drag the fill handle to get all the shared profits.

- Now, we will determine the profit increase or decrease by entering the following formula in
**cell F5**:

`=(E6-E5)/E5`

Here,

**(E6-E5)** = Profit increase or decrease

**(E6-E5)/E5**= Ratio of profit increase or decrease and initial profit

- To continue the series, we’ll draw down the fill handle.

## How to Calculate Average Percentage of Percentage in Excel

Make the assumption we have Voter Nos. and Percentage of Votes in Favor data from an election.

Here is our sample data in the three columns of **Voter Zones, Voter Nos. **and **% Votes in Favor.**

We will compute the proportion of votes cast in favor using the following formula:

`=SUMPRODUCT(C5:C14,D5:D14)/SUM(C5:C14)`

**🔎**** Formula Breakdown:**

**SUMPRODUCT(C5:C14,D5:D14)**

Firstly, **SUMPRODUCT **will multiply **Voter Nos.** in** cell C5 **with **% Votes in Favor **in** D5 **and continue the process up until 14th row after that the function will add up the products.

**Output: **61628

**SUM(C5:C14)**

This adds values from **C5 to C14**.

**Output:** 110100
