Finding the Percentage Increase
Finding percent increase is similar to finding the decrease, but the formula is a little different. This video demonstrates this using three examples. To find the percent increase in the numbers 1.8 and 3.0, use the equation 3.0 – 1.8 ÷ 1.8 = 1.2/1.8, which can be simplified to 2/3. The decimal equivalent to 2/3 is 66.7%.
