Percentage Difference Calculator
This calculator can calculate how many percent different (more or less) the second number is compared to the first number.
Please enter the first number in the Number 1 box and the second number in the Number 2 box:
The formula to calculate percent difference is as follows:
((N2-N1)/N1)*100 = PD
N1 = Number 1 (First)
N2 = Number 2 (Second)
PD = Percent Difference
If Number 2 is greater than Number 1, then the percent difference is more.
If Number 2 is less than Number 1, then the percent difference is less.
The Percentage Difference Calculator rounds the percent difference up to two decimals. If your difference is huge, it may be rounded to 100 Percent less.
If Number 2 is less than Number 1, the formula actually gives a negative answer, but we remove the minus sign and put "less" next to it instead to make it clearer.
