Market Capitalization Targets

What is the percentage needed to increment or deincrement to the nearest number of arbitrary end number places. How much must market cap change in order to reach the nearest hundred million? In other words, what percentage gain takes 189.5 billion to 189.6 billion? How about down?

1) Know variable number to be measured
2) Know variable number of end number places to target
3) Find variable number percentage needed to move up or down
4) Optionally: Run random or stepped simulations and graph the data and results
5) Optionally: Specify denominations (B=billion, M=million, etc.) with a letter

No prewritten compound algebraic functions
ex: =MOD() is OK if % is not available, =ROUND() may NOT be ok because that can be solved algebraically

 

Here is a simulation of some numbers when evaluated by my solution:
