## anonymous 4 years ago find the percent change from 24 to 72. tell whether is it a persent increase or decrease

Well, since 72 is just about three times 24, it would seem to be about 300% of 24. That indicates a 200% increase.

if you want a formula for it $\Large \frac{\text{final value} - \text{initial value}}{\text{initial value}}$
