    Do you mean cash or XP?

    For cash, that means you have a multiplier of about 1.7. If you actually mean XP, Your multiplier is 8.5

    Thanks. It is cash.

    I thought it was higher but I can't complain. I don't typically but multiples of premium (multiplier) items and have millions in the bank. The corn has been a great savings plan.

    Another American that cant do math; please take United states out of your id :D

    34,967,991 - 34,966,809 =1182

    GNB gives 100

    1182 - 100 =1082

    impressive

    1182 -100 /100 = 10.82

    So I calculate your multiplier at 10.82

    check

    100 * 10.82 =1082 +100 = 1182

    Remember we have to subtract the 100 from GNB as it is not part of the multipler

    ( I hope some one does not prove me wrong as I also am from the US)
    Correct. Although in-game it's expressed as 1082% extra, not 10.82 times the original funds. :-)
    At least that's what all the item descriptions say - "2% (or whatever) bonus money & XP to all jobs."

    I'm not a stupid man, math is defiantly NOT my strong spot, I direct tv news for a living so I do use some math. But I won't lie I have enjoyed this thread and watching you guys hash all this stuff out.
    Pretty smart people we have here.

    Happy tappin' everyone.

    I loved the thread discussion. It was refreshing to not see egos and sarcasm get in the way. My brain exploded very early in the thread. All I know is that when I collect rents, I get a truckload more than the base amount. So, my multiplier can be correctly defined (to use official mathematical terminology) as "a truckload" or "1.0 truckloads" :)

    If a premium item has a bonus, is it better to have multiples of the item? I have duplicates of a few things that aren't out but if it adds to my bonus I'll stick them out there somewhere!

    If you're going to buy multiples, be sure to compare payouts. For instance, most premium vehicles are 40 donuts and payout 2.00 multiplier. The ambulance pays less. That little red jet-bike thing they just introduced is, I believe, only 30 donuts and pays 2.00

    There are some weird ones that pay better than others. Not just cars, of course.

    If you do have items that pay out multipliers, try to keep them out of storage! I have stuff hidden behind buildings, melted snowmen, etc. :)

    This is exactly what I have done. I won't go into details on how I have purchased so many multiples of premium items (no I have not hacked my game) it's just not something I will discuss here. Lets just say that this is honestly the only game I have played on my phone since the game came out. So I enjoy investing in the game. I have gone a little overboard on certain items,. In fact if you could see behind all my buildings you would see so many items crammed back there. I obviously display at least one item, but I will splurge quite a bit on this game. I enjoy it quite a bit obviously

    That being said I just notice this is my 200th post on the forum.

    CHEERES TAPPERS!!!

    If I buy a gallon of gas one day at $3.25 a gallon and the next day at $3.75 a gallon.

    3.75/3.25=1.15

    Mmmmm Muuulllltipliiierrr.

    3.25 multiplied by 1.15=3.75.

    If I want to calculate the percent increase...

    3.75-3.25=.50

    .50/3.25=.15

    Expressed as a fraction 15/100.

    Aka 15%

    I see some are still incorrect so I will repost, sorry to rehash. Basic math skills are not so basic anymore.

    Think of it this way, the dog track pays out 2-1, 3-1 etc. That is a multiplier, it pays 2x, 3x etc.. not 1x +1, 2x +1 etc. There is no addition and subtraction using or determining a multiplier, hence the name-multiplier.

    And I went to a public school, come on people.

    I say my multiplier is 5.38.

    Original x multiplier is total per tap.

    Congrats

    You must have a ton of in game cash. If I visit your town, I tap on your 3 stackables because you have conveniently placed them for visitors. Taking your multiplier into account, you make more than 1/2 a million dollars from the corn alone.

    Sound advice. Now I'll have to check my multilplier after all this discussion.

    Testing on the G&B

    62508019 - 62507741 = 278

    278 - 100 = 178

    178/100 = 1.78%

    So I have a 1.78% multiplier. Assuming I have done that right

    Damm OP what do you have in your town???

    Nope. your multiplier is over a 100%. 1.78 would mean you would get a 101 dollars evry time you collect from the Gulp'N'Blow

    No, a 1.78 multiplier would mean total per tap would be 178 in cash.

    Looneytune you have a 2.78 multiplier.

    This is correct!!

    Also, do not confuse multiplier with bonus. The jet bike has a 2% bonus not a 2x multiplier. By itself w/ nothing else that would be a 1.02 multiplier

    First of all thank you dor being a kind Neighbor and tapping on my stackables. It's appreciated.

    As far as in game cash goes, I guess yes I have quite a bit, I keep it between 30 and 40 million.
    It will drop down to the low 20's at times because sometimes I just get bored and buy the diamond a few times just to see what my next XP number will be for my donut bonus.
    But Ita has not been below 15 million in months.
