# If 40 is increased to 56, what is the percent of change?

**Solution:**

Given new change = 56 and old change = 40

We know that percentage of change = (new change - old change)/ |old change | × 100

Percentage of change = 56 - 40 / |40| × 100

Percentage of change = 16/40 × 100

Percentage of change = 40%

Since, the percentage of change is positive integer, so it is increase.

We have a positive change of 40% because the new value is greater than the old value.

## If 40 is increased to 56, what is the percent of change?

**Summary:**

If 40 is increased to 56, the percent of change is 40% increase.
