1. ## Shared accommodation Calculator/Balancer. Will this formular work ok to who pays what?

Ok Thanks Much simpler to calculate than my method. Maybe easier to explain to the slower payers though.
2. ## Shared accommodation Calculator/Balancer. Will this formular work ok to who pays what?

Say there is 4 people sharing a house that should pay 25% each of the outgoings. The method I used is as follows for use in a spread sheet. To calculate who owes what and to whom? You can update the spread sheet by adding more expenses also for the pay period Person 1 pays rent $270.00 / fortnight and same person pays$140.00 for Electricity. Person 2 buys food $400.00 / fortnight Person 3 buys food$400.00 / fortnight Person 4 buys some food $100 /fortnight Total Group spend = 1310 In order to calculate the difference percentage in money you take each persons spending and divide by the Total Spent Person 1 = 0.31 eg 31% Person 2 = 0.305 Person 3 = 0.305 Person 4 = 0.076 So to Balance the books I use the (percentage paid) - 0.25 = difference in percent that person 1 needs to pay. Person 1 0.31 - 0.25 = 0.06 eg 6 % too much spent of that persons share of 25% Person 4 0.076 - 0.25 = - 0.174 eg not enough spent To calculate how much money goes where. Person 1 Total * 0.06 =$ 78.60 receives because the result is positive. Person 4 Total * -0.174 = \$ -227.94 eg person has to cough up to the others depending on there result. If you have 2 couples you can go 1 step further by adding each of them together. That way it should balance things out. PS I wish I had worked this out a few years ago when I was sharing with 3 other slow payers. Thanks in advance

4. ## The Official "Introduce Yourself" Thread

Hi Im a bit of an experimenter I have plenty of time on my hands but not much money. Im into internal combustion engines. I am currently interested in Ruben's Tubes. I have some sound waves to try on one let me know if you have a working one, I would like to see the affects of my engine sounds. I have attached a sample of my engine going through the gears with the bass boosted by 18 dB and mid to HF cut. 12345 18 dB bass boost.mp3 I can raise or lower the frequency to suite the length of the tube.
