Hi

I need a formula for the following word problem.

The cost of a cellphone has increased by 400% over 10 years. Does this correspond to a decrease of 4 times its cost?

A chemist is using

389

milliliters of a solution of acid and water. If

19.5%

of the solution is acid, how many milliliters of acid are there? Round your answer to the nearest tenth.
