## How to Find the Percentage Growth ?

The following formula helps in finding the percentage growth.

**Percentage Growth = ((Future Value - Present Value)/Present Value) × (1/Number of years) × 100**

Let us look at a solved example to understand more about percentage growth.

**Solved Example:**

The production of wheat in the year 2020 is 300 units and is expected to be about 600 units in the year 2025. Find the percentage growth rate in production.

**Solution: **

Present production of wheat (or) Present value = 300 units

Future expected production of wheat (or) Future value = 600 units

Number of years = 2025 - 2020 = 5 years

Percentage Growth Rate = (Future value - Present value)/Current value) × (1/Number of years) × 100

= ((600 - 300)/300) × (1/5) × 100

= (300/300) × (1/5) × 100

= 20%

Therefore the percentage growth in production of wheat is 20%.

Now, try the calculator to find the percentage growth for the following values.

- Present value = 80 Future value = 150 Number of years = 2
- Present value = 100 Future value = 200 Number of years = 3
