## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

If I am calculating the percentage of a number lets say 10% of 20000 which is 18000

Then I take 20% of 18000 which is 14400

Why is this not the same as taking 30% of 20000? When I take 30% of 20000 I get 14000. Why is there is a difference of 400?

Thanks,

Mike
