# CLASS-6FINDING INCREASED PERCENTAGE

FINDING INCREASED PERCENTAGE -

To find the increased percentage between two values, you can use the following formula:

Increased Percentage = ((New Value - Old Value) / Old Value) * 100

[Where, New Value > Old Value]

Where:

• New Value:- The updated or higher value.
• Old Value:- The initial or lower value.

Let's go through an example:-

Example.1) Suppose the price of a product was originally \$50, and it has increased to \$65. We want to calculate the increased percentage.

Ans.) Old Value = \$50
New Value = \$65

Increased Percentage = ((65 - 50) / 50) * 100 = (15 / 50) * 100 = 0.3 * 100 = 30%

The price has increased by 30%.     (Ans.)

Example.2) Suppose the price of a product was \$50 initially, and after a price increase, it became \$70. We want to calculate the increased percentage.

Ans.) Old Value = \$50
New Value = \$70

Increased Percentage = ((\$70 - \$50) / \$50) * 100 = (\$20 / \$50) * 100 = 0.4 * 100 = 40%

So, the price of the product increased by 40%.      (Ans.)

Example.3) Suppose you have a product that originally cost \$50, and the price has increased to \$65. Please find the increased percentage in price.

Ans.) Old Value = \$50
New Value = \$65

Increased Percentage = ((65 - 50) / 50) * 100 = (15 / 50) * 100 = 0.3 * 100 = 30%

The price of the product has increased by 30%.        (Ans.)
