False True 33 10% of 30 is 3. 30 + 3 = 33L. An increase of 20% can be represented with a multplier of 1.20. Therefore, if ࠵? is the original number of members, 1.20࠵? = 60 and ࠵? = 50. The original number of gym members. $20 to $24 indicates an increase of $4. 4/20 = 20/100 = 20%. $15 to $18 indicates an increase of $3. 3/15 = 20/100 = 20%. The percentage increases are equal!

SOLUTIONS DISCUSSING THE CULMINATION QUESTION Consider an wage increase that happens by adding $6 to the original amount: $12 an hour increases to $18 an hour, $44 an hour increases to $50 an hour, $99 an hour increases to $105 an hour. 1) In which of the cases above is the percentage increase the largest? 2) At what starting value is an increase of $6 equivalent to a 6% increase? 3) At what starting value is an increase of $ ࠵? equivalent to an ࠵? % increase? + , will always be a larger value when ࠵? is smaller, so $12 to $18 an hour is the largest increase. We want the $6 to be 6% of the starting value; this happens with $100. In general, ࠵? % is , ".. . If we want ࠵? , ".. = ࠵?, then the /100 part needs to cancel with the ࠵? . This can only happen with ࠵? = 100, so this will always happen only with $100 exactly.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
