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 - Vinitial) / Vinitial × 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 V0 times the percentage increase/decrease p divided by 100:

d = V0 × p / 100

The final value V1 is equal to the initial value V0 plus the difference d:

V1 = V0 + d
