Percent increase can be tricky.

find 16,200 - 14,500 that gives you the increase.

to find % increase.

divide that answer by the original amount which is $14,500.

you will get at decimal. Move the decimal to the right 2 places and add the % sign.

16200 / 14500 = ?

we simplify by crossing out 0s

162 / 145

so nearly 12 % or...11.724137931% to be exact
