# If 250 is increased to 300, what is the percentage increase?

Apr 18, 2016

The percentage change = 20 %

#### Explanation:

The initial value $= 250$

The final value $= 300$

The difference = 300 - 250 = color(blue)(50

The percentage change $=$ (change in value) / initial value $\times$ $100$

$= \left(\frac{50}{250}\right) \times 100$

$= \frac{100}{5}$

= 20 %
