## How do I convert procent in a decimal number (Excel)?Excel can't calculate with my FACS data (i.e. 36.7%), so I tried to convert the procents into decimal numbers. Since nothing changed after I tried to simply change the format of the cells to "decimal numbers", I tried to delete the "%" and than convert the cells into a decimal number. But somehow this does not work for some cells! after I used the replace-command to replace the "%" with nothing, some cells change their value to something else. Can someone tell me why and can someone tell me how I can change all cells at once from "36.7%" to "0.367"?Thanks in advance.Jan

25th Aug, 2019Anton VrdoljakUniversity of MostarHi Jan Wulf,You have to define the format for your cells, and Excel automatically performs the calculation. Here are steps:Step 1Right-click the cell you wish to change, and select "Format Cells."Step 2Click the "Number" tab in the Format Cells window.Step 3Click "Number" in the category list.Step4Enter the number of decimal places you prefer next to the field labeled Decimal Places. This can be done by manually entering the number or by clicking the up/down arrows to change the default value of 2.Step 5Click "OK" to change the percent into a decimal.Kind regards, AntonCite1 Recommendation

28th Aug, 2019Mohammad N. ElnesrKing Saud UniversityFrom the picture you posted, it appears that the numbers are formatted as text, this can be solved automatically by Excel using the upper left triangle that appears in the cell and click "Convert to number" (see the attached picture). You can select all the cells with the mistake and it will fix them all at once. If the triangle did not appear, then try to copy your numbers and Paste Values (from paste special, see picture 2). If not working, then you can convert all the numbers using a simple formula that uses the VALUE, LEFT, and LEN functions. If you can't do it, just drop the file here and we will do it for you.

Confused with numerator degrees of freedom. How to calculate sample size using ANCOVA measures in Gpower?Question11 answers

• Asked 4th Oct, 2017

Diksha SapkotaCan anyone please advised me on calculating sample size using Gpower? I want to see the effect of an intervention( independent variable: 2groups) on mental health (continuous) of participants and I have considered baseline outcome measure as a covariate? How can I calculate the sample size in this case? Furthermore, my two secondary outcomes (both are in continuous scale) are also affected by intervention according to the previous literature. In such case, do I have to consider them as a covariate? I am confused on numerator df and don't know what to put in both of these instances?ViewJournal Citation Report (JCR) 2022 ReleaseDiscussion21 replies

Jason Alexander RöhrI have never conducted a meta analysis before, so I was wondering how to approach it.Let's say I wanted to look a how a specific metric has evolved over the past 20 years, for example the reported polymer molecular weight for the highest tensile strength (the question here is arbitrary). Any pointers to how I one would go about that? Seems pretty straight forward to brute force it, albeit very time consuming.Any help would be appreciated.ViewHow do I report significant covariates in a MANCOVA? Question3 answers

• Asked 11th Sep, 2020

Nuchelle ChanceI have a study that I have conducted on resilience that I conducted a MANCOVA on as it has 6 categories of DVs (factors of resilience). All of my DVs are significant. I have chunked in my demographics as my co-variates and some have significant findings whereas some do not. For instance, the co-v's of age, gender, and sexual orientation are significant. How do I go about reporting these significant co-variates? Also, do I report that the others such as ethnicity and education level were not significant predictors of resilience in this study?  ViewFlourescence-Activated Cell Sorter (FACS)Chapter
