Default attenuation

Does anyone know the formula to calculate attenuation or a link to a site for this?

How to Brew - By John Palmer - Yeast Terminology

basically, just take the gravity points (e.g., 1.043 would be 43 points) and plug them into

(OG-FG)/OG x 100 = attenuation

That formula is used to determine apparent attenuation, of course. I use this calculator for alcohol content (and calorie count for curiosity). Calculator It will also give real attenuation.
