# What is the percent increase from 25 to 75?

Apr 25, 2016

200%

#### Explanation:

First, find the difference between the two numbers:

$75 - 25 = 50$

Next to find the percentage increase:

$\left(\text{Difference")/("Base}\right) \times 100$

Here, we have to find the increase FROM 25, thereby making 25 the base.

Percentage increase = 50/25xx100%
=2xx100%

=200%
