SKILL PRACTICE SOLUTIONS S3. If a positive number is doubled, its value increases by which percent? 200% 100% 50% S4. Is this statement true or false? Mike can find 3% of any number by finding 1% of the number and multiplying that value by 3. 4 False True When we double a positive number, we are increasing it by the amount of the original number. Given that a number is 100% of itself, we are increasing the number by 100%. An increase of 100% indicates a final value of 200%: 100% of the original amount plus 100% of the original amount. The answer of 200% is tempting since calculating an increase of 100% can be done by multiplying by 200%. 1% + 1% + 1% = 3% of a number.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
