If the investment rises from $1000 to $5000, the percent is what from the original?

Math 
Sheenybeany,
5000/1000 = 5 = 500%

HELP,
Thank you

Ms. Sue,
No.
The investment has only increased by 4,000.
4,000/1,000 = 4 = 400%

HELP,
Umm, isn't it 5000? :)

Math 
Sheenybeany,
Wait... isn't it what percent of the original, not how much it increased?

Math 
HELP,
No. 500% is right. I tried it on my online homework. Thanks :)
