I created a function that will return the VAT percentage from Total and VAT amount..
My Function is :-
```public decimal vatRsToPer(decimal vatAmt, decimal totalAmt)
{
try
{
decimal rupees;
rupees = decimal.Multiply(vatAmt, 100m);
rupees = decimal.Divide(rupees, totalAmt);
return rupees;
}
catch {
return 0m;
}
}```

Problem is, suppose the total amt is "2400.00" and VAT% is "4", that means the VAT Rupees is "96.00"..
If i want to get the percentage of the VAT from that VAT rupees "96.00" and Total rupees "2496.00"(which is including VAT rupees). then my function return "3.85" not "4"..

Every Suggestion will be appreciated...

Are you saying you want to round up?

No no...
I Solved it.
Just added this line at the top:-
totalAmt = decimal.Subtract(totalAmt, vatAmt);

Em, I might have gotten this wrong but if you have Price + VAT than you have 104 % of the total price. MEaning 2496/1.04 = 2400 and (2496/104)*4=96.

Should be:
`rupees = decimal.Divide(rupees, totalAmt-vatAmt);`
