im working on a game and im having a problem calculating the percentage of value decrease.
for example Player 1 has a health value of 3503. Player 2 attacks Player 1 with -1450.
now i want to know the percentage of health lost (eg : player 1 has lost 58% of his original health)
Dim Player1_Health As Integer = 3503 Dim Player2_Attack As Integer = -1450 Dim Percentage As Integer = Math.Abs(Player2_Attack) / Player1_Health * 100 Dim msg As String = "Player 1 has lost " & Percentage & "% of his original health!" Debug.WriteLine(msg)
