I have to write each of the following percent change into a ratio comparing it to the original quantity. Then I have to write it as a constant multiplier.

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?
