## Why do people need this calculator?

To know, why people need this calculator, let us consider the following example.

A company's profit has been decreased from \$150,000 to \$135,000. When we see the profit in dollars, it is very clear that the profit has been decreased. If we want to know the decrease of profit in terms of percentage, first we have to find the difference between the initial value and changed value.

Here the difference between the initial value and changed value = 150,000 - 135,000 = 15,000.

Now, to get the decrease in percentage, the above difference (15,000) has to be divided by the initial value 150,000 and multiplied by 100.

(15,000/150,000)x100 = 10%

When students do lengthy problems in math, they have to concentrate a lot on getting idea to solve the problem.
