A school had 900 students at the start of a school year. If there is
an enrollment increase of 7% by the beginning of the next year, what is the new
enrollment?

  • math - ,

    1.07*900

  • math - ,

    In other words 100 percent (1.00) plus the new 7 percent (0.07) = 107% or 1.07

  • math - ,

    7%100=.7
    900/.7=1285.71

  • math - ,

    7%/100=0.07
    900/0.07=12857.14

  • math - ,

    Anonymous,
    7%/100 = .07 is correct
    however to increase something by 7% you add .07 times the original amount. In other words multiply by 1.07.
    What you did was find what 900 was 7% of, a very large number compared to 900.
    Use the "does my answer make sense test". If I only increase 900 by 7% will it really be over twelve thousand? That sure would be a lot of new students.
