An operating log indicates that the average flow through a pump for ten hours is 285 gallons per minute. The following week, the same output is measured as 340 gallons per minute. What is the percent change?

Percent change is measured by the difference divided by the original capacity.
difference = new - old = 340-285=55 gpm
old capacity = 285 gpm
Percentage change = 55/285*100%
