To calculate the percentage increase between two values follows the steps below. It takes a few simple math and you're done. But if you don't like to do the math then you can simply use our easy-to-use Percentage Increase Calculator to calculate the percentage change(Increase or Decrease) between any numbers.

### Step 1: Write down the both starting and final values.

For example, let's say your auto insurance premium just went up. Write down these values:

Your car insurance premium was \$200 before the increase. This is the starting value. After the increase, it costs \$300. This is the final value.

### Step 2: Find out the increased amount.

Simply minus the starting value from the final value and you'll find out how much it increased.

In our case: \$300- \$200 = \$100 increased.

### Step 3: Divide the increased amount by starting value.

A percentage is just a special kind of fraction. For instance, "50% of doctors" is a smart way to write "50 out of 100 doctors." By dividing the answer by the starting value, we get a fraction that compares the two values.

In our case, \$100 / \$200 = 0.5.

### Step 4: Multiply the answer by 100.

You're the last step away from your required percentage amount. You've to just multiply the result by 100.

In our example: 0.5 x 100 = 50% increase in insurance premiums.
