Hi Zeeshan 01;

The following MIF page is a good one to help you with that: Percentage Change.

Did you look at the page I gave the link to?

Although it is headed 'Percentage Change', the first part of it covers your problem completely, by giving:

1. the definition of *percentage increase*;

2. two different methods of calculating *percentage increase*;

3. one calculation example for each of the two methods.

MathsIsFun's treatment of this topic is excellent and very clear.
