Percent Change

Is there anything wrong with calculating the percent change of 2 average numbers? For example:

2014 average monthly number of school lunches sold: 2500

2015 average monthly number of school lunches sold: 3000

Percent change 2014 - 2015: 20%

Nothing wrong - why do you think there might be?

Math Focus: Calculus
500(change in sale)/2500(previous sale) = 0.2
0.2*100 = 20
You are right.
