Imagine This Scenario:
You have a lemonade stand website. Last month, 10 people visited your website to check out your lemonade recipes. This month, 15 people visited your site.
You want to know: Did my website get more popular? By how much?
Here's How the Calculator Helps You Find Out:

Enter the Previous Traffic:
 What is it? The number of visitors you had before (last month).
 Example: You type in 10 because last month you had 10 visitors.

Enter the Current Traffic:
 What is it? The number of visitors you have now (this month).
 Example: You type in 15 because this month you have 15 visitors.

Calculate the Difference:
 What happens? The calculator finds out how many more (or fewer) visitors you have now compared to before.
 Example Calculation: 15 (current)−10 (previous)=5 more visitors15 \text{ (current)}  10 \text{ (previous)} = 5 \text{ more visitors}15 (current)−10 (previous)=5 more visitors.

Find the Growth Rate Percentage:
 What is it? It tells you how big the change is in terms of percent (%).
 How does it work? The calculator divides the difference by the previous number and then multiplies by 100 to get a percentage.
 Example Calculation: Growth Rate=(5 (more visitors)10 (previous visitors))×100=50%\text{Growth Rate} = \left( \frac{5 \text{ (more visitors)}}{10 \text{ (previous visitors)}} \right) \times 100 = 50\%Growth Rate=(10 (previous visitors)5 (more visitors))×100=50%

See the Result:
 What do you get? The calculator shows that your website traffic grew by 50%.
 What does this mean? Your website got 50% more visitors this month than last month.
Why Is This Useful?
 Understand Growth: It helps you see if more people are visiting your website over time.
 Set Goals: You can set targets, like aiming for a 20% growth next month.
 Make Decisions: If your traffic is going up, you might keep doing what you're doing. If it's going down, you might try something new to attract visitors.
A Simple StepbyStep Example:
Let's use bigger numbers to practice.
Step 1: Previous Traffic
 You had 200 visitors last month.
Step 2: Current Traffic
 You have 260 visitors this month.
Step 3: Calculate the Difference
 Difference in visitors: 260−200=60260  200 = 60260−200=60 more visitors.
Step 4: Find the Growth Rate Percentage
 Calculate the growth rate: Growth Rate=(60200)×100=30%\text{Growth Rate} = \left( \frac{60}{200} \right) \times 100 = 30\%Growth Rate=(20060)×100=30%
Step 5: See the Result
 Your website traffic grew by 30%.
Special Cases to Know:

No Change: If the number of visitors is the same as before, your growth rate is 0%.

Decrease in Traffic: If you have fewer visitors now, the growth rate will be a negative number, showing a decrease.
 Example: If you went from 200 visitors to 150 visitors: Growth Rate=(150−200200)×100=(−50/200)×100=−25%\text{Growth Rate} = \left( \frac{150  200}{200} \right) \times 100 = (50/200) \times 100 = 25\%Growth Rate=(200150−200)×100=(−50/200)×100=−25%
 Result: A 25% growth rate means a 25% decrease in visitors.

Starting from Zero:
 If you had 0 visitors before and now have some visitors, the calculator will show a 100% growth rate to indicate a big increase from nothing.
 Example: From 0 to 10 visitors is a 100% growth.
Key Takeaways:
 Growth Rate tells you how much your website traffic has increased or decreased in percentage terms.
 Positive Percentage: More visitors now than before.
 Negative Percentage: Fewer visitors now than before.
 Zero Percentage: No change in the number of visitors.
Why Percentages?
 Easier Comparison: Percentages make it easy to compare growth between different sizes.
 Example: Growing from 10 to 20 visitors is a 100% increase.
 Example: Growing from 100 to 110 visitors is a 10% increase.
 Understanding Impact: Helps you see the significance of the change relative to where you started.
