Bash To Calculate Percentage For Time Differences

To calculate the percentage increase:

First: work out the difference (increase) between the two numbers you are comparing.

Code:
Increase = New Number - Original Number

Then:  divide the increase by the original number and multiply the answer by 100.

Code:
% increase = Increase ÷ Original Number × 100.

If your answer is a negative number then this is a percentage decrease.

To calculate the percentage increase:

10.5 ÷ 35 = 0.3  (See our division page for instruction and examples of division.)

Finally, to get the percentage we multiply the answer by 100.  This simply means moving the decimal place two columns to the right.

0.3 × 100 = 30

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.

If your answer is a negative number then this is a percentage decrease.

To calculate percentage decrease:

First: work out the difference (decrease) between the two numbers you are comparing.

Decrease = Original Number - New Number

Then: divide the decrease by the original number and multiply the answer by 100.

% Decrease = Decrease ÷ Original Number × 100

If your answer is a negative number then this is a percentage increase.

If you wish to calculate the percentage increase or decrease of several numbers then we recommend using the first formula.  Positive values indicate a percentage increase whereas negative values indicate percentage decrease.

Example

10.5 ÷ 35 = 0.3

Increase = New Number - Original Number

Then

% increase = Increase ÷ Original Number × 100. jamied_uk
