*“The process of changing an initial value more than once is called successive change. When these changes are represented in percentage changes then it is called successive percentage change.”*

A good moving from a producer to a customer change hands multiple times with each actor raising the cost by certain percentages is an example of “**successive percentage change**“. From school maths, the concept “Compound interest” is a special case of successive percentage change with the same percentage change every time.

Let’s understand the concept using this picture:

**Example**:

Here the relationship between the initial and final values is as follows:

We can use this concept directly find:

**Final Value (Initial Value and % changes given)****Overall Percentage Change (% changes given)****Initial Value (Final value and % changes given)**

This concept is very useful in solving arithmetic and Data Interpretation questions.

Happy Learning !!!
