To work out what 19!!!37; of !!!163;30.49 is, divide !!!163;30.49 by 100 and multiply by 19.

To work out what 19% less than !!!163;30.49 is, divide !!!163;30.49 by 100 and then multiply by 81 (because it's 100-19)

To work out what 19% more than !!!163;30.49 is, divide !!!163;30.49 by 100 and then multiply by 119 (because it's 100+19)

Or do !!!163;30.49 times 0.81 = answer

0.81 is 1.00-0.19

and workings in red as requested
