Set the time interval. The increased

**growth**and allows us to estimate changes in time. Therefore, a necessary starting point and last time point recorded in the present. Suppose we need to compare**the increase in**wages by July 2005 since July 2004, i.e. during the year.2

Define indicators at the beginning and end. Let in July 2004, the salary received at his hands, was equal to 15 thousand rubles. In July 2005, the salary had a value of 18 thousand rubles.

3

Subtract from the final figure initial. Subtract from 18 thousand to 15 thousand rubles, we get 3 thousand rubles.

4

Divide the resulting value by the initial figure. Divide 3 thousand to 15 thousand rubles, produced of 0.2.

5

Multiply the resulting value by 100%. 0,2 multiply by 100, we get 20%. Thus, for the year

**the increase in**wages amounted to 20%. They also say that "wages rose 20%.Note

Growth can be negative. If at the end of the period the salary is 14 thousand rubles, at the 3rd step, subtract from 14 thousand to 15 thousand rubles, we get -1 thousand.

Then at the 4th step you divide -1 thousand to 15 thousand rubles, we get about -0,07. And at the 5th step, multiply this by 100, we get -7%. Have negative growth, i.e. wages for the period under review decreased by approximately 7%.

Then at the 4th step you divide -1 thousand to 15 thousand rubles, we get about -0,07. And at the 5th step, multiply this by 100, we get -7%. Have negative growth, i.e. wages for the period under review decreased by approximately 7%.

Useful advice

After computing the test to avoid errors. If on the calculator to 15,000 add 20%, the calculator will show 18000. Hence, the growth are identified correctly.
