Answer: I want to Calculate how much bigger one Number is than another in

Calculating Percentage Increase

To calculate how much bigger B is than A in percentage, use the following formula:

Formula:
``` (B - A) / A * 100  ```
In this case, B is 95 and A is 30.

So, (95 - 30) / 30 * 100 = 216.67%

This means that B is 216.67% bigger than A.

To break it down further, you can say that B is 186.67% more than A.
