# Percentage Difference Calculator

Percentage difference = 66.6667%

**Steps:**

Lets assume the percentage difference is P.

Formula given, P = First value - Second value/First value + Second value/2 × 100

Or, P = 5 - 10/5 + 10/2 × 100

Or, P = -5/15/2 × 100

Or, P = -5/7.5 × 100

Or, P = | -0.6666666666666666 | × 100

Or, P = 0.6666666666666666 × 100

So, P = 66.6667%

#### How to calculate Percentage Difference with Formula?

If you want to find the percentage difference between ‘a’ and ‘b’, here’s how to do it:

Percentage difference = { (a-b) / [ (a + b) / 2 ] x 100 }

This percentage difference formula is extremely useful to calculate the increase or decrease in percentage values of any two given quantities. In the above formula, ‘a’ represents the initial or original value while ‘b’ denotes the changed (increased or decreased) value.

Here’s a step-wise breakdown of percentage difference formula:

- Identify values of ‘a’ and ‘b’
- Find difference in value between ‘a’ and ‘b’
- Find average of the two values with ‘(a + b) / 2’ formula
- Calculate percentage difference by ‘ ( Difference / Average ) x 100%’
