Percentage change calculation and method with example

The percentage change from old value (Vold) to new value (Vnew) is equal to the old and new values difference divided by the old value times 100%:

percentage change = ($1200 - $1000) / $1000 × 100%

 = 0.2 × 100% = 20%

Example #2

Price percentage decrease from old value of $1000 to new value of $800 is caluclated by:

percentage change = ($800 - $1000) / $1000 × 100%

 = -0.2 × 100% = -20%
