If you understand this, you can probably work out option 2 on your own.

Hi folks,
I hope someone might be able to help me with this one. At work, we calculate a number of measures as simple percentages, and refer to 'uplift' as an amount of effort required to increase percentage by 1%.
For example, if we achieved a target for 7500 out of 10000 items then we achieved 75%; to get to 76% we could do three things;
1) add 100 to the numerator,
2) subtract approx 132 from the denominator,
3) add approx 417 to the numerator and denominator.
The first value is straightforward, it's 1/10th of the denominator. I'd like to know how to calculate the amounts for options 2 and 3.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Scott

Hi,
Many thanks for your speedy reply, I think I followed it ok;

Thanks, now I should be able to calculate the required effort for all three given scenarios for any size of items.
Based on trying this for different numbers, I think the following is true for option 2:
if
