Percent decrease  =

 

 ( (  [Original amt - New amt] / Original amt  ) x 100 ) %

 

Example   10 to 8

 

( (  [10 - 8] / 10 ) x 100)%   =  (2/10 * 100)%  =  20%

 

 

Percent increase is similar

 

 ( (  [ New amt - Original amt] / Original amt  ) x 100 ) %

 

Example  8 to 10

 

( ( [10 - 8] / 8) x 100) % =  (2/8 x 100)%  = (1/4 x 100)%   =  25%
