What is the definition of percent of increase?

Percent of increase is the product of changes in price over the original price with 100%. That is:percent increase = (changes in price/original price) x 100%.For example:In a year period, the price of a stock increased from 50 dollars a share to 59 dollars a share. To find the percent of increase in the share price, compare the change in price to the original price:percent increase = (changes in price/original price) x 100%.= (59 dollars - 50 dollars)/50 dollars x 100%= 18%
