# Percent change (percent difference)

The percent change (percent difference) between two values is a measure of the relative change between those values. It is calculated as a percentage, using the following formula:

Percent change = (new value - old value) / old value * 100

For example, if the old value is 10 and the new value is 12, the percent change would be (12-10)/10*100 = 20%.

##### How do you calculate percent change difference?

To calculate percent change, you will need to find the difference between two values and divide by the original value. Then, you will multiply the result by 100 to find the percent change. For example, if you wanted to find the percent change between the values of 10 and 20, you would take 20-10=10 and divide by 10, the original value. 10/10=1. 1*100=100. Therefore, the percent change would be 100%. Can you calculate percentage difference between two percentages? Yes, you can calculate the percentage difference between two percentages. To do so, you would take the absolute value of the difference between the two percentages, and then divide that by the average of the two percentages. How do you find the percent difference? To find the percent difference, you would take the absolute value of the difference between two values, and divide it by the average of the two values. The resulting value would be multiplied by 100 to get a percentage.

### What's the difference between change and difference?

The two words "change" and "difference" are often used interchangeably in mathematical contexts, but they actually have different meanings.

"Change" typically refers to a quantity that is increasing or decreasing. For example, if you start with 10 apples and then add 2 more apples, the change is +2. On the other hand, if you start with 10 apples and then lose 3 apples, the change is -3.

"Difference" typically refers to the result of subtracting one quantity from another. So, if you have 10 apples and you subtract 2 apples from that, the difference is 8. What is the use of percentage difference? Percentage difference is used to compare two values and see how much they differ, as a percentage of the larger value. For example, if one value is 10 and the other is 20, the percentage difference would be 50%. This is because the difference between the two values, 10, is half of the larger value, 20.
