percentage increase

Enter percent increase using the box above.

\%addition=a+b\% \times \frac{a}{100}

Percentage increase is a way to show how much something has grown or gotten bigger compared to its original size.

Imagine you have a garden with 10 flowers. You decide to plant some more flowers and now you have 15 flowers in total. To find the percentage increase in the number of flowers, you can use this formula:

Percentage Increase = (New Amount – Original Amount) / Original Amount x 100

\%addition=a+b\% \times \frac{a}{100}Percentage Increase = (15 – 10) / 10 x 100

Percentage Increase = 5 / 10 x 100

Percentage Increase = 0.5 x 100

Percentage Increase = 50%

So the percentage increase in the number of flowers in your garden is 50%. This means that your garden now has 50% more flowers than before.
