# How do you find the percent change given the original number is 50 and new number is 75?

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{^}$75
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{^}$-50
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{^}$=25
so the difference is of 25, and 25 of 50 =50% or $\frac{50}{100}$ so here the original number was 50, so, 50 was 100% now it is 100% +50%
So the number increased by 150%
