Finally, what if you need to know the percentage change (increase or decrease) between amount or size "X" and "Y"? An item you have been thinking of purchasing had cost $249.95 and now costs $199.95. The ratio is 249.95:199.95. What is the percent the price dropped? (We would ask what is the "discount?") We can easily flip the calculation on its head. Suppose the price had been $199.95 and is now $249.95 (199.95:249.95), what is the percent increase? Use Percentage Calculator 4 (Source: financial-calculators.com)

Finding the difference in rates is more complex. In our second example, let’s assume that the country’s gross national product grew by 2%. This year, it grew by 2.5%, a change of 0.5 percentage points. This number seems unimpressive at first glance, but is it? Thus, we must look below the surface. How much did the percentages change? Let’s find the percentage change through the following formula:

); hence the net change is an overall decrease by x percent of x percent (the square of the original percent change when expressed as a decimal number). Thus, in the above example, after an increase and decrease of x = 10 percent, the final amount, $198, was 10% of 10%, or 1%, less than the initial amount of $200. The net change is the same for a decrease of x percent, followed by an increase of x percent; the final amount is p(1 - 0.01x)(1 + 0.01x) = p(1 − (0.01x) (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
