Rate of Change (ROC) is a measure of the percentage increase or decrease in a quantity over a specific period of time. In Python, you can compute the rate of change using the following formula:


ROC = ((new_value - old_value) / old_value) * 100


Here's a simple example of how to compute the rate of change in Python:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
def calculate_roc(old_value, new_value):
    roc = ((new_value - old_value) / old_value) * 100
    return roc

old_value = 100
new_value = 150

roc = calculate_roc(old_value, new_value)
print("Rate of Change:", roc)


In this example, we have a function calculate_roc that takes the old value and new value as input and calculates the rate of change using the formula. We then call the function with the specified values and print the result.


You can modify the values of old_value and new_value to compute the rate of change for different quantities.
