Lesson Excerpt:

Sometimes when working with money, a price will change over time.  When this happens, the price can either go up or come down.  We call this change in price the percent of increase or the percent of decrease.

How do we figure out the percent of an increase?


To figure out the percent of an increase, we have to begin by comparing the original price and the new price.  When a price changes, there is a price that the item began at, the original price, and there is a current price which is the new price of the item.
