How to Calculate GST the hard way (using you know, numbers and shit)
If you have something without GST, and you need it with GST, you add 10%. Which is easilest done on a calculator by multiplying your amount by 1.1 (which is really saying mister Calculator, give me 110% of this amount).
$100 * 1.1 = $110
To go the other way, let's say we have $110, which includes 10% GST already. Working out how much is the GST part is quickly done on a calculator by dividing by 11. Not 10 you say? No, 11. Because easiestly explained, before GST you had 10 parts of a number, the "extra" 10% is another "part". So we need to work out what that part is.
$110 / 11 = $10
Huzzah! We have the GST component of an amount! Now, we need to take that GST part from our original amount of $110 to get what the amount is without GST.
$110 - $10 = $100
But seriously, why do all this manual work when this GST calculator does it for you?
