Question:

a. Job opportunities for physician’s assistants are expected to increase from 58,000 in 2000 to 89,000 in 2010. What is the percent of increase?

My Answer :

I subtracted 58,000 from 89,000 and got 31000.

Then I divided 31,000 by 89,000 and got a large decimal number. I took the first four digits from that number and got .5344

I moved the decimal point over twice and got the answer 53.44% increase in jobs.
