**drwls**, Saturday, July 28, 2012 at 3:33amThe number accepted was 300 both years.

There were 1500 applications in 2006.

There were 1.3*1500 = 1950 applications in 2007.

300/1950 = 15.385% is the 2007 acceptance rate.

Round that off to 15%

You don't need algebra for this.

You can also calculate

(1/1.3)*0.2 directly, and get the same answer
