**Gabby**, Sunday, December 16, 2012 at 5:38pmwait ok nvm i figured out town A (heres my work)-

a)

increase in population = 1500 - 1346 = 154

percentage increase = 154/1346 (100%) = 11.44%

**Gabby**, Sunday, December 16, 2012 at 5:50pmok here is my work for town B-

increase in population= 1,800-1,546 =254

percentage increase= 254/1,546 (100%)= 16.42%

then in conclusion I got my answer that town B has the greatest amount of increase ..... is this correct?
