    Question Java Methods and Percentages

    Hi there,

    I have a 'small' question:

    I am trying to create a method that will deduct the same percentage for a number of times, example:

    a + b = c

    c - 3% = d

    d - 3% = e

    e - 3% = f......

    and so on and so forth, for a number specified earlier in the program, until I get to my final result.

    Could you kindly give me some hints please?
