The percentage change is when we know the initial value and the final value and we need to find the percentage increase or decrease.

We have created a support page to help you understand how to find the percentage change.

There are some worked examples and clear step-by-step instructions on this page.

If we know the initial amount, and we need to find the final amount after a percentage increase or decrease, we just need to follow these two simple steps:

- Step 1) Work out the percentage of the original amount.
- Step 2a) If it is a percentage increase , then add this amount to the original amount.
- Step 2b) If it is a percentage decrease, then subtract this amount from the original amount.

We have now found our final amount after the percentage increase or decrease.

Step 1) Work out the percentage.

15% of $750 = $112.50

Step 2) Subtract the amount from the original price.

$750 - $112.50 = $637.50

The sale price of the laptop is $637.50.

Step 1) Work out the percentage.

3% of $6000 = $180

Step 2) Add the amount to the original price.

$6000 + $180 = $6180

At the end of a year, I have $6180.

Step 1) Work out the percentage.

35% of 40 = 14

Step 2) Add the amount to the original price.

40 + 14 = 54

The larger bag weighs 54 ounces.

Step 1) Work out the percentage.

18% of 150 = 27

Step 2) Subtract the amount from the original price.

150 - 27 = 123

The released version lasts 123 minutes.

Here you will find a selection of worksheets on percentage increase and decrease.

We have split the worksheets into 3 different sections:

- Set 1) Percentage Increase and Decrease - finding the final amount when a percentage and an initial amount are given;
- Set 2) Percentage Change worksheets - finding the percentage change between an intial amount and a final amount are given;
- Set 3) Percentage Increase / Decrease / Change - finding the final amount after percentage increases and decreases, as well as the percentage change.

The sheets are graded so that the easier ones are at the top.

These worksheets involve finding a final amount, when an initial amount and a percentage increase or decrease are given.

Take a look at some more of our worksheets similar to these.

This is the calculator to use if you want to find a percentage increase or decrease.

There are two different calculators on the page:

- one calculator will work out the percentage change given an initial and final amount;
- the other calculator will find the final amount given a percentage increase (or decrease) and an initial amount.

The calculator will not just find the answer for you, but also show you the working out for each step.

Sometimes you are told what the percentage increase/decrease is, and you are also told the final number.

Your task is then to find the original number before the percentage increase or decrease.

Our reverse percentage calculator will help you to find the original number.

The sheets in this area are at a harder level than those on this page.

The problems involve finding the percentage of numbers and amounts, as well as finding the amounts when the percentage is given.

Often when we are studying percentages, we look at them in the context of money.

The sheets on this page are all about finding percentages of different amounts of money.

If you would like some practice finding the percentage of a range of numbers, then try our Percentage Worksheets page.

You will find a range of worksheets starting with finding simple percentages such as 1%, 10% and 50% to finding much trickier ones.

To convert a fraction to a percentage follows on simply from converting a fraction to a decimal.

Simply divide the numerator by the denominator to give you the decimal form. Then multiply the result by 100 to change the decimal into a percentage.
