    translate number range to percentage

    Hi if I have a range of numbers and want to display it as a percentage starting with 0 to 100 how do I do that? For example I have the numbers 4, 10, 22, 72, 5. What i need is for 4 to represent 0% and 72 to represent 100%. Then I have to basically find what percent 22 would be.

    TIA.

    Hello,

    72-4 = 68 will make it 100%

    So for increasing by 1, you will raise the percent with 1/68 %
