Actual Food Cost is 3% or more above Projected Food Cost 2009-04-07
From Kam:
Your store guidelines states that when Actual Food Cost is 3% or more above Projected Food Cost, immediate corrective action be taken by the Unit Manager. In January, your Actual Food Cost was $11,000, and your Projected Food Cost was $10,850. To find out what percentage the difference is do I divide the difference ($150) by Actual Food Cost ($11,000) or Projected Food Cost ($10,8500)? What would be the answer? Thanks

Plotting percentage change 2006-10-11
From Beckie:
I have worked out a set of percentage differences which are all percentage decrease. Should i express them as a negative percentage as -20%? I also need to plot them on a graph and am not sure whether to just use the percentage difference as it is, in which case i get a positive gradient, or include a negative axis and plot them in this way, in which case i would get a negative gradient. I think the slope of the curve will be the same either way so it might not matter!

Percent difference 2004-04-10
From A parent:
For a school science project, my son Alex is taking measurements of plant growth at regular intervals. As part of the data, he must provide the maximum percent difference observed in the categories his team has identified.

So, for example he has six plants with four measurements each. (He has more, but I'll keep it simple) For the first plant he measured 2mm, 2.4mm, 2.9mm, and 3.2mm. For the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th plants, he has similar numbers. Is there a way to calculate the maximum percent difference between any two plants in his measurements during the project? Doing it for each combination would be tedious.

Percentage difference 2002-03-08
From Tedd:
Can you give me the formulas for calculating percentage differences between two numbers? For example: if the first number is 10 and the second number is 15, then the second number is 50% larger than the first number. However, the formula to calculate that percentage won't work if the first number is greater than the second number as in the following example: The first number is 15 and the second number is 10, with the second number being 33.3% less than the first number. Or maybe I'm mistaken and the same formula will work in both situations.
