# How to Calculate Percentage Increase?

The percentage of a number represents a fraction of 100.

## Answer: % increase = {(New number - original number)/original number} × 100

**Explanation:**

Percentage is represented by %.

We first subtract the original number from the new number.

The next step is to divide the change by the original number.

Finally, we multiply this value by 100 to get the percentage increase.
