the price of gasoline rose from 97.5/L to 101.4/L.

Percent increase=

i did:

101.4 - 97.5

101.4 x 0.0390 = 3.9%

is this right?? im not really sure how to do this.sorry for all these questions.

**Ms. Sue**, Saturday, November 1, 2008 at 9:20pmTo find the percent increase you need to divide the difference between it and the new number by the old number.

101.4 - 97.5 = 3.90

3.9 / 97.5 = 0.04 = 4%

To check it, multiply: 97.5 * 0.04 = 3.90

The price increased $3.90 which is a 4% increase.
