Enter the initial value and the final value into the Increase Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Increase Ratio.

## Increase Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Increase Ratio.

IR = TI / IV

• Where IR is the Increase Ratio
• IV is the initial value
• TI is the total increase

To calculate the increase ratio, divide the total increase by the initial value.

## How to Calculate Increase Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate the Increase Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the initial value.
• The initial value is given as: 5.
2. Next, determine the final value.
• The final value is provided as: 15.
3. Finally, calculate the Increase Ratio using the equation above:

IR = (V1-V2)/V1 * 100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

IR = (10)5 * 100 = 200.00 (%)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

initial value = 6

final value = 8
