# How do you find the percent change if original: $53 and new:$75?

The change is relative to the original value, so it will be (75-53)/53xx100/1 = 41.5% change.
The change is $75-$53=$22. We compare this change to the original value, not the final value. ($22)/($53)=0.415. A percentage means 'out of 100', so multiplying by $100\$ to get 41.5% gives us our answer.
