The number of students at another university increased from 14,000 students in 1971 to 30,000 in 1975. What was the percent increase in enrollment during this period?

30,000  14,000 = 16,000
16,000 / 14,000 = ?
Change the decimal answer to a percent.

Is it 1.14%?

math  Ms. Sue, Wednesday, July 15, 2009 at 5:50pm
Nope. You didn't convert the decimal to a percent.
16,000/14,000 = 1.1429 = 114.29%
