My account went up 70 cents in a week from $5,152. 39 (5153.09). What percent increase is that? Thank you

Percentage increase =  (increase/ initial value) x 100

Increase = New value - Initial value

Initial value = $ 5152.39

New value = $ 5153.09

Increase = $ 5153.09  - $ 5152.39 = $ 0.7

Percentage increase = (0.7/5152.39) x 100 = 0.013585928 %

which equals to 0.0136 % to the nearest four decimal places.


NB:To find the percentage increase: First: work out the difference  between the two numbers you are comparing. Then  divide the increase by the( initial) original value and multiply the answer by 100.
