Percentage increase calculator is specifically programmed to calculate the increase and decrease in the percentage depending upon the original value.

Before we go ahead to use it, you need to have a sound knowledge of how to calculate percent increase.

**“Any increase in the value from its actual value that depends upon the 100 parts of the original value is called the percent increase.”**

**For example:**

If the price of the sugar in the market increases to $1.2 from the standard price that is $1, then we say that the price increase in percentage is 20%

You can determine the percent increase with the help of the following formula:

$$ \text{Percentage Increase} = \frac{\text{New Value} – \text{Actual Value}}{\text{Actual Value}} $$

Let us solve a couple of examples to clarify your concept in more depth:

**Example # 01:**

Jack’s blood pressure increased from **80** to **140**. How to find percentage increase between two numbers.

**Solution:**

As we know that the percent increase formula is given as follows:

$$ \text{Percentage Increase} = \frac{\text{New Value} – \text{Actual Value}}{\text{Actual Value}} $$

Now, calculating percentage increase by putting the values given:

$$ \text{Percentage Increase} = \frac{\left(140 – 80\right)}{80} * 100 $$

$$ \text{Percentage Increase} = \frac{\left(140 – 80\right)}{80} * 100 $$

$$ \text{Percentage Increase}= \frac{60}{80} * 100 $$

$$ \text{Percentage Increase}= 75% $$

**Input:**

- Simply enter your initial value
- Enter the final value the same way
- Hit the calculate button

**Output:**

The percentage increase calculator determines:

- Percentage increase
- Percentage decrease
- Difference between the initial and final results

Yes, if the percentages are determined in the same way, then they can be added simply.

Let us suppose that the respective increase or decrease in the percentage is equal to **x**.

We know that:

$$ x = 21% * 30 $$

$$ x = \frac{21}{100} * 30 $$

$$ x = \frac{63}{10} $$

$$ x = 6.3 $$
