What is the percent change of 56 to 71?
The percent change is 26.8%.
In order to find the percent change, we must subtract the old value (56%) from the new value (71%), and then divide the answer by the old value. In this case, 71-56=15 and 15/56=0.268... Now that we have a decimal, we must multiply the answer by 100. 0.268 * 100= 26.8, so our answer is 26.8%.
