This is the example in my book:

3% increase, 103/100, 1+0.03

So I understand how to do single digit numbers, like 8, but the problems i'm stuck on are:

11% decrease

12.5% growth

6 1/4% loss and x% increase.

How would I go about solving these?

**PsyDAG**, Friday, February 20, 2009 at 11:27am1 + .03 = 1.03

1 - .11 = .89

1 + .125 = 1.125 = 9/8 (.125 = 1/8)

1 - .0625 = .9375 = 15/16

(.0625 = half of .125 or 1/16)

(1 + x)?

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
