I am working on graphs and I need to find the percentage of increase from one figure to another. How do I do that? For instance staff hours for 2006 were 28011 and for 2007 were 31230. How do I find the percentage of increase?

Percent change between two value ranges 2007-11-28
From Joe:
How do you calculate a percent change between tow value ranges - for instance if I project a range for 2007 to be between 100 and 120 and a range for 2008 to be between 120 and 140, how do I calculate the estimated increase between the range? Is it 0% to 40% (taking the two inside values rto calculate the minimum and the two outside values rto calculate the maximum?)
