    I need to multiply by a certain percent, 200.
    How would I go about doing this?

    (My number) x 200%

    How to do that in WE?
    Prefer JASS, but I can convert from GUI too.

    JASS:
    set MyVariable = 50*I2R(2.00)
    //If you use using both reals.
    set MyVariable = 50.00*2.00


    This is simple math.

    ^
    actually for 200%, you multiply it with 3, not 2

    So, 3.00 for 200%.
    So 30% would be 1.30?

    50*200%=100.
    50*2.00=100.

    200%=2.00.

    ...

    50 increased by 100% is 100

    50 increased by 200% is 150

    yes

    EDIT: I might have been confused with your question there

    100% from 50 is 50, so 200% is indeed 100
    so 30% is actually 0.3, but to increase some number by 30% you multiply it with 1.3

    to increase by a percentage use this formula:
    (Original Number) x (1.00+(Percentage/100))
    To decrease:
    (Original Number) x (1.00-(Percentage/100))
    To find the percent value:
    (Original Number) x ((Percentage/100))
