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%

500(change in sale)/2500(previous sale) = 0.2 0.2*100 = 20 You are right. Last edited by skipjack; October 26th, 2016 at 01:42 PM.
