Value 1 = 1.36 x 10^58
Value 2 = 2.36 x 10^19,709

Is there any mathematical technique or approach to simplify this?


In that case Value2 - Value1 = Value2 accurate to 19,651 decimal places.

Of course, one would have to question whether percentage increase is a meaningful method of displaying the difference.
