## Why use an online percentage increase calculator?

Using MYcalcu’s percentage increase calculator, you can easily calculate percentage increases.

Online calculations are quick and straightforward, and they can solve your problems and equations quickly and easily.

## How does it work?

First, you have to find out the difference (or increase) between the two numbers you want to compare. Using the below formula, you will get the difference or increase:

Increase = New Number - Original Number

When you find out the increase, then divide it by the original number and multiply the answer by 100.

The formula for percentage increase used by Mycalcu is as follows:

Percent increase = [(new value - original value)/original value] * 100

If your answer is a negative number, then this is a percentage decrease.
