18.

In 2000, the circulation of a local newspaper was 3,250. In 2001, its circulation was 3,640. In 2002, the circulation was 4,100.

a. Find the percent of increase in the newspaperâ€™s circulation from 2000 to 2001 and from 2001 to 2002.

b. Which period had a higher percent of increase, 2000 to 2001, or 2001 to 2002? (3 points)

2000 - 2001: 3640 - 3250 = 390

2001 - 2002: 4100 - 3640 = 460

390 divided by 3250 = 0.12

460 divided by 3640 = 0.1263736 = 1.26?

The percent change is (new-original)/original.

(3640 - 3250) / 3250 = 390 / 3250 = 39 / 325 = 3 / 25 = 12%

(4100 - 3640) / 3640 = 460 / 3640 = 46 / 364 = 23 / 182 = 12.637...%

The largest change came from 2001 to 2002.
