    HI LETS USE AN EXAMPLE  SAY  THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN   60  AND 50


      60/50 X 100 =6/5 X 100  DIVIDE  THE 100 BY 5 = 20   THIS GIVES 6 X 20 = 120%


     ANOTHER EXAMPLE   DIFFERENCE BETWEEN  50 AND 60


    50/60 X 100  =  5/6 X 100   THIS GIVES   5/3 X 50   = 250/3   =  83.333%


    AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THESE EXAMPLES  YOU DIVIDE THE TWO NUMBERS INTO ON ANOTHER AND MULTIPLY BY 100


    IF ONE OF THE NUMBERS USED IS SMALLER  DIVIDED INTO THE OTHER THE ANSWER IS  ALWAYS OVER 100%


    IF ONE OF THE NUMBERS USED IS LARGER DIVIDED INTO THE OTHER THEN THE ANSWER IS ALWAYS LESS THAN 100%


    I HOPE THIS HELPS
