Anonymous Coward User ID: 1237967 United States 05/04/2011 07:17 PM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | how about an increase from $51 to $2111? How much percentage increase is that? Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1331320Here'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 |

jpopUser ID: 32408217 United States 04/22/2013 11:48 PM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | Is that 50% increase? Please show me the math on how to sold that. Thanks. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1331320 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 |

Anonymous Coward User ID: 27809228 United States 04/23/2013 12:24 AM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | 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... afriend 38723144 this is the correct answer. Anonymous Coward 20536185 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 |
