## Formula to Calculate Percentage Change

The formula to calculate the percentage change is mentioned below.

The following example explains the concept of a % change.

If you’ve ever seen the price of a stock or other security rise or fall by a certain percentage, you might be curious as to how that figure was arrived at. The price one period later is multiplied by the same number that was deducted from or added to the first period to compute the percentage change.

For example, if something increases in value from \$95 to \$110, it has increased by 15.8 percent.

% Change = {(110 – 95)/ 95}*100 = 15.8%
% Change = 15.8%
