## How to calculate percentage change?

Example:-If a population in 2020 is 1250056 and 1265685 in 2021 then find what percentage change of population?

• Population in 2020 = 1250056; let x1
• Population in 2021 = 1265685; let x2
• Population increase in 2021 = [(x2 – x1) / x1] * 100
• % change = (1250056 – 1265685) / 12565685 * 100
• % change = ( 15629 ) / 1265685 * 100
• % change of population = + 1.25%
• 1.250% increase in population in 2021.

Example:-A person who has a salary is \$5000 after an increment of salary is \$5650 then find what percentage change of his salary?

• Initial salary = \$5000 ; let z1
• After increament of his salary = \$5650; let z2
• Percentage change of his salary = (Z2 – Z1) / Z1 * 100
• % change = (5650 – 5000) / 5000 * 100
• % change = ( 650 ) / 5000 * 100
• % increase = + 13%
• 13% increase of his salary after the increment.
