## Formula

The percentage change formula is:

PC = [(NV – OV)/OV] * 100

• PC = Percentage change
• NV = New value
• OV = old value

## How to calculate percentage change?

• First, determine the new value or final value
• Secondly, determine the old value or initial value
• subtract the new value from the old value then divide by the old value
• finally, multiply by 100 you get the percentage change

## Solved Example

For example – you bought a stock at \$50, and its current value is \$60. then calculate the percentage change.

The initial value when you buy a stock is \$50

Now the current value of a stock is \$60

Percentage Change = ((60 – 50) / 50) * 100 = (10 / 50) * 100 = 0.2 * 100 = 20%

Percentage Change = 20%

So, the stock price increased by 20%.
