lets call x1 the original value and x2 the new value the formula to find percent change is: \[\frac{x_{2}-x_{1}}{x_{1}}*100\]

\[\frac{|.440 - .324|}{.440} \times 100 = \frac{.116}{.440} \times 100 = 26.36\]

I wasn't saying that. I'm not really sure. I think the person wants to understand it. Might be checking answers. You never know.

just remember if they want the percent increase or decrease, its always positive, if they want percent change, answer can be positive or negative
anonymous
  • anonymous
well, always positive assuming it actually increases or decreases as they ask
anonymous
  • anonymous
nevermind, probably more confusing now
Hero

If they say find percent change, then you have to figure out for yourself if the change is an increase or decrease. However, if they say percent increase or decrease, then you don't have to worry about confusing yourself.
