# What is the percentage increase calculator?

Percentage increase calculator can help you calculate how much a value has increased in percentages. It is one of the first calculators we have ever created. Not much has changed from the original version. To calculate how much a value has increased, all you need to do is enter the initial value and the final value. Once you do that, the calculator will calculate how much the value has changed, in absolute terms and in percentages. ## Where is the percentage increase useful?

Percentages are used in almost every aspect of life. In fact, you probably use them every day, for things such as tax, or discounts. The first time percentages were used to calculate tax was back in Ancient Rome. The first Roman emperor, Augustus, issued a tax on goods sold. The tax was 1/100, or one hundred times less than the value of the sold goods. Today, however, we wouldn’t say 1/100, or 17/100, we would simply say 1% or 17%.

## How do you calculate percentage increase?

The percentage increase is very simple to calculate. All you need is the initial value and the final value. First, you need to subtract the initial value from the final value. Once you have done that, take the result you got and divide it by the initial value. Now, you will most likely have a decimal number. Finally, take that number and multiply it by 100. Once you do, you have successfully calculated the percentage increase.

## How to calculate percentage increase over time?

If you’re trying to calculate how much a value has changed over time, you are going to have to do multiple calculations. However, all of the calculations are pretty simple. Let’s say you’re calculating the average viewership of a channel for every month, and you want to express the change in percentages. All you have to do is calculate the percentage increase month to month. So, from January to February, January is the initial value and February is the final. Then, from February to March, February is the initial value, and March is the final value, and so on.

## How to calculate percentage increase between two numbers?

To calculate the percentage increase between two numbers, you can use the method we mentioned in the post before. Keep in mind, you always subtract the initial value from the final value, even when the final value is smaller. In those cases, we are talking about a percentage decrease.  ## How to figure out percentage increase?

If you’re still not sure what percentage increase is, let me try to explain. “Percent” means one hundredth (1/100), or a value 100 times smaller than the original. So, if the original is 100, 1% of it would be 1. Now, if we were to increase 100 by 30%, we would increase it by 30 hundredths (30/100), which would be 30, making the final value 130.
