Review the GDP information for the past few years from the Bureau of Economic Analysis's Website. Provide a brief summary of the GDP trends over that timeframe and discuss two or three events which may have caused these trends.

Well, I'm not going to give you the answer straight out. You should try to figure that out by yourself.
What I will tell you is that to increase a number by 20% you have to find 20% of that number first.
To do that, divide the number by 100, then multiply it by 20. that is 20% of that number. Then you can just take that number and add it to your original number.
Is that the answer you were looking for? Your question was sort of confusing.
Hope this helps!
