The formula =(new_value-old_value)/old_value can help you quickly calculate the percentage change between two numbers. Please do as follows. 1. Select a blank cell for locating the calculated percentage change, then enter formula =(A3-A2)/A2 into the Formula Bar, and then press the Enter key.

**How do you calculate cost difference?**

Percentage Change | Increase and Decrease

- First: work out the difference (increase) between the two numbers you are comparing.
- Increase = New Number – Original Number.
- Then: divide the increase by the original number and multiply the answer by 100.
- % increase = Increase ÷ Original Number × 100.
