Fees and Doing it Right

Got this email today and thought it would be worth a quick post:

"Just to make sure I am doing this right I have bought venom sac at 212 copper and am selling it at the wall of 264 copper which nets about 39 copper per trade, am i doing this right.

Thanks for helping me means a lot !"

First take out your fees:

264 X .85 = 224.4

Then calculate your profit:

224.4 - 212 = 12.4 copper profit

Here's a hint as well. If you just use a decimal point for the copper then things are much easier to read. So in this case it would be 2.64 silver * .85. I tend to do a similar thing with items worth over a gold. If an item was 2 gold 64 silver 20 copper, then I take out the copper and just write 2.64 for my calculations.

    Or just use the calculator at tpcalc.com like a normal person.

    Eventually you should be able to do it in your head. I use easier math like 3/4 or 1/2.
