# Percentage change using cells in which there are formulas

#### Robson

##### New Member
If the basic formula for a percentage difference between 2 numbers is =(A1-B1)/B1 how do you obtain the same result when A1 and B1 are themselves formulas? I assume there must be some prefix to add before A1 and B1.
Many thanks
Hugh

Square and cube roots
The =SQRT(25) is a square root. For a cube root, use =125^(1/3). For a fourth root, use =625^(1/4).
It is the same, the calculation is done on the results in A1 B1.
