When patterns call for X-amount of stretch in the fabric, how do you measure it?

Take 10 inches of fabric and stretch it.
If it stretches 12.5 inches with ease the stretch is 25%
If it stretches 15 inches with ease the stretch is 50%
If it stretches 17.5 inches with ease the stretch is 75%
IF it stretches 20 inches with ease the stretch is 100%

Or use the stretch guide on the pattern envelope.
Both methods work.
