One hundred per cent increase...

Per cent literally meaning "per one hundred"

One hundred 1's equal 100...

One hundred in addition to/increased by itself is 200...

Therefore 100%

It's one hundred percent increase

0.01 = 1%
0.1 = 10%
1.0 = 100%

1.0 × 100 = 100

100 + 100 = 200

\$51 = 100%

\$2111= x

x = 2111 X 100/51

x = 4139%

Here's how I learned it in clown college.

\$2111 is (equal sign) an X increase of original \$51

In equation form it looks like

2111 = X(51)

Divide both sides of the equal sign by 51 and you get:

41.392 = X(1)

Or simply

X = 41.392

Since we are dealing with "per cent," move the decimal over to the right 2 "one hundredths"

So the percent increase from \$51 to \$2111 is 4,139.2% I believe

A 100% increase is the same as multiplying by 2.
A 200% increase is the same as multiplying by 3.

A (n)00.....0 increase is the same as multiplying by (n+1).

Get it?

I don't know why they didn't just give you the formula like you asked:

to find the % increase, the formula is this:

2111-51=2060 then divide the answer by the original number (51):

2060 / 51 = 40.39 which is 4039% increase...

Percent markup
First: Find the difference between 100 and 200 by subtracting

Next put the difference (the answer to the first step) over the amount you started with so 100/100

Then compare to the percent so 100/100 equals x/100

cross multiply so 100 x 100 = 100(x)

so 10000=100x

divide both sides by 100 to get x alone 10000/100=100/100(x)

Answer 100=x so 100 percent markup

Yes it is.

I would calculate it like this.

2111 / 51 = 41.39

41.39 - 1 = 40.39

40.39 x 100 = 4,039.21% Increase
