My formula looks like this =D6-D9/D9. I got an answer of 0.00%. When I write the formula like this =(D6-D9)/D9 it gives me an answer of -97.40%.

My teacher emailed me and said that 'The relative difference percents can be more than 100% but cannot be less than 100%.' Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

**Sadler**, Sunday, March 1, 2009 at 4:59pmThe order of operations says that the correct way to write this equation is

=(D6-D9)/D9

I'm actually doing a very similar project in Excel these days too. Good luck--it's a little tough.
