## Solved Example on Percentage Increase Calculator

**Solved Example 1:**

The production of wheat crop increases from 240 tons to 300 tons. Can you find the percentage increase in production?

**Solution:**

Initial Production = 240 tons

Increased Production = 300 tons

Percentage Increase = (Increased Production - Initial Production)/Initial Production x 100

= (300 - 240)/240 × 100

= 60/240 × 100

= 1/4 × 100

= 25%

Therefore, the production increased by 25%.

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

- Initial Weight = 72 kgs, Increased Weight = 75kgs
- Initial Score = 175, Increased Score = 225
