Subject: Re: Foolproof way to learn percentages

In receiving a summary of an investment, I'm not sure how to figure the percentage of a gain or loss. For example, previous statement of $3,285.00, earnings of $785, value now $4070.00. How do you set of the equation for either a percentage gain in this case or percentage in a loss?
