Calculate relative percentage increase change from the initial (original, reference) value 800 to the new one, 4.5 and the absolute change (actual difference)

Relative percentage increase change from the original number 800 to the new value of 4.5?

(4.5 - 800)/|800| =


- 795.5/800 =


- 795.5/800 × 100/100 =


(- 795.5 × 100 ÷ 800)/100 =


(- 79,550 ÷ 800)% =


- 99.4375% ≈


- 99.44%;

Relative percentage increase is negative, so we actually have a relative percentage decrease.

Answer:
:: written in two ways ::

Relative percentage increase change from the original number 800 to the new value of 4.5:

Not rounded = - 99.4375%
Rounded to maximum 2 decimals ≈ - 99.44%

Absolute change (actual difference):
4.5 - 800 = - 795.5

Relative percentage increase change from 800 to 4.4?
Relative percentage increase change from 800 to 4.6?


Signs: % percent, ÷ divide, × multiply, ≈ approximately equal, |n| absolute value of n: |-n| = n;

Writing numbers: comma ',' as thousands separator; point '.' as a decimal mark;

Relative percentage change (relative percentage increase or decrease)

The absolute change (actual difference):

  • The difference between two numerical quantities, y - x, is called absolute difference, actual change or actual difference.
  • When x value is a reference value (the starting value that the value of y is compared to) then the difference between y and x is called the absolute change.
  • The actual difference (actual change) between two values is not always a good way to compare two numbers.
  • The actual change of one unit from number 8 to number 9 is of much more significance than the same difference of one unit between the much larger numbers of 9,999,998 and 9,999,999.
  • In this case we need to take into account the "size" of the quantities involved.

Relative change (from a number x to another number, y):

  • Relative change (from x to y) = (Absolute change from x to y) / |x| = (y - x) / |x|, where x is the reference value that y is being compared to and |x| is the positive value of x.
  • For values y larger than the reference value x, the relative change is a positive number, and in this case we have a so called relative increase.
  • For values y that are smaller than the reference x value, the relative change is negative and in this case we have what it's called a relative decrease.
  • The relative change is not defined if the reference value is zero, x = 0.

Relative percentage change

  • Relative percentage change is the Relative change calculated as a percentage;
  • Relative percentage change = Relative change × 100/100 = (Relative change × 100)%.

Examples of calculating the relative percentage change (increase or decrease)

  • Relative change (from 2 to 3) = (3 - 2) / |2| = 1/2 = 0.5 = 50%; this change is a relative percentage increase;
  • Relative change (from 9.999.999.998 to 9.999.999.999) = (9.999.999.999 - 9.999.999.998) / |9.999.999.998| = 1/9.999.999.998 ≈ 0 = 0%;
  • Relative change (from 2 to -3) = (-3 - 2) / |2| = -5/2 = -2.5 = -250%; this change is a relative percentage decrease;
  • Relative change (from 9.999.999.998 to -9.999.999.999) = (-9.999.999.999 - 9.999.999.998) / |9.999.999.998| = -19.999.999.997/9.999.999.998 ≈ -2 = -200%; this change is a relative percentage decrease;
  • Relative change (from -2 to 3) = (3 - (-2)) / |-2| = (3 + 2) / 2 = 5/2 = 2.5 = 250%; this change is a relative percentage increase;
  • Relative change (from -9.999.999.998 to 9.999.999.999) = (9.999.999.999 - (-9.999.999.998)) / |-9.999.999.998| = (9.999.999.999 + 9.999.999.998) / 9.999.999.998 = 19.999.999.997/9.999.999.998 ≈ 2 = 200%; this change is a relative percentage increase.
