## Percentage increase/decrease calculation

The percentage increase/decrease from initial value (Vinitial) to final value (Vfinal) is equal to the initial and final values difference divided by the initial value times 100%:

percentage increase =
Vfinal - VinitialVinitial
× 100%

#### Example #1

Price percentage increase from initial value of \$1000 to final value of \$1200 is caluclated by:

percentage increase =
\$1200 - \$1000\$1000
× 100% = 0.2 × 100% = 20%

#### Example #2

Price percentage increase from initial value of \$1000 to final value of \$800 is caluclated by:

percentage increase =
\$800 - \$1000\$1000
× 100% = -0.2 × 100% = -20%

So

percentage decrease = 20%

## Difference and final value calculation

The difference d is equal to the initial value Vinitial times the percentage increase/decrease p divided by 100:

d =
Vinitial × p100

The final value Vfinal is equal to the initial value Vinitial plus the difference d:

Vfinal = Vinitial + d
