I have general doubt with **percent increase** and **percent greater**. Is there a difference between them or are they same? Initially I thought they were same but now I am confused. Please let me know if there is a difference or not.

In terms of formula they are the same

But percent increase and decrease generally refer to different values of the same thing

eg. Price of a house in September versus October

Whereas percent greater and lesser refer to values of different comparable items

eg. Price of house A and house B

Okay got it, in the case of greater or lesser it is going be by how much it is greater right?

Ex: Say, Price A is greater than Price B then the percentage greater is x in the following equation

A = B + x% of B

Is this right?

Yes

got it, thanks!
