Enter the current value (\$) and the initial value (\$) into the Appreciation Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Appreciation Rate.

## Appreciation Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Appreciation Rate.

AR = (CV-IV) / IV * 100

• Where AR is the Appreciation Rate (%)
• CV is the current value (\$)
• IV is the initial value (\$)

## How to Calculate Appreciation Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Appreciation Rate.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the current value (\$).
• The current value (\$) is given as: 30,000.
2. Next, determine the initial value (\$).
• The initial value (\$) is provided as: 20,000.
3. Finally, calculate the Appreciation Rate using the equation above:

AR = (CV-IV) / IV * 100

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

AR = (30,000-20,000) / 20,000 * 100 = 50 (%)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

current value (\$) = 50,000

initial value (\$) = 70,000
