# Add percentage to dynamic data

Hey all!

Adding a function, where I want to pull a number from the dynamic data API (which is working fine). However I want to add 5% to the number pulled from the API and display that number.

How can I add a percentage to a dynamic data number? Even if I can multiply the number by 105% or something like that.

For example, if the number that the API prints out is 100, I want it to display with +5% on it, so in this case, as 105.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Initial number = x
Desired number = y
Multiplier = 1.05 (105%)

x * 1.05 = y

Save x in a number field called â€śInitial Numberâ€ť.
Then save y in a separate number field called â€śDesired Numberâ€ť

You can (and probably should) save the Multiplier as well.

From the way you phrased your question, it seems you know what youâ€™re doing so if youâ€™re still having trouble with this, please elaborate on the exact problem youâ€™re having.

Thanks so much man! I was stupidly trying to multiply by 105% instead of 1.05
