Some other examples of

**percent**changes: An**increase**of 100% in a quantity means that the final amount is**200**% of the initial amount (100% of initial + 100% of**increase**=**200**% of initial); in other words, the quantity has doubled.

Similarly, how do you calculate a 200 increase?

**Increase the number 1 by 200% of its value:**

- 1 + Percentage increase =
- 1 + (200% × 1) =
- 1 + 200% × 1 =
- 300 ÷ 100 × 1 =
- 300 × 1 ÷ 100 =
- 300 ÷ 100 =

**To calculate the percentage increase:**

- 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.

Correspondingly, what is a 300% increase?

Number 100 **increased** by **300**% (**300** percent) of its value (percentage **increase**) and calculated absolute change (actual difference). Answer: number percentage **increased** = 400, absolute change (actual difference) = **300**.

A **200**% change in something represents a **tripling** of the original value: x + 2x = 3x. A **200**% rate means that for each time period, the value changes by 2x: x[t] = x[t-1] + 2x[t-1]. So yeah, you **triple** your amount every time period.
