This is probably a dumb question, but I was asked to get a measurement in percentage between 2 linear equations with different slopes.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have the following linear equations

y1 = 450463x + 50000

y2 = 668453x + 100000

Can I determine a constant difference between them, in terms of A is X percent greater than B? if so, how do I calculate it?

my guess is :

668453 - 450463

----------------- = 32.6 %

668453

However when I test points it doesn't work, it varies, hmm maybe I'm looking for the wrong percentage? Any ideas?
