Percentage difference calculator is used to find the difference between two absolute values divided by average and then denoted in percentage. For example, at a certain period of time value of an item will be degraded form its original price. By using this calculator we can easily calculate the depreciated value of particular item.

Percentage difference = [(first value –second value) / (first value +second value)/2] x 100

Example 1: Allen sold 34 tickets and rocky sold 26 tickets for book exhibition. Find the percentage

difference.

Solution Steps:

Step 1: The difference between 34 and 26 is:

34 - 26 = 8

Step 2: Average of 34 and 26 is:

(34+26)/2=60/2=30.

Step 3: Calculate the percentage

Difference = 8

Average = 30

= (8/20) * 100

= 0.266667*100

= 26.6667

= 26.67% (nearest hundredth)

Percentage difference between Allen and rocky for no.of tickets sold is 26.67%

Example 2: What is the percentage difference between 50 and 75?

Solution Steps:

Step 1: Difference = 75 -50 =25

Step 2: Average = (75+50)/2 =125 /2 =62.5

Step 3: Percentage difference = (25 /62.5)*100

=(0.4) *100

= 40%

Percentage difference between 50 and 75 is 40 %.
