original fraction : x/y new fraction : (.5x)/(.75y) = (2/3) (x/y) so the new fraction is 2/3 of the old one, thus it was decreased by 1/3

According to your wording: - you wanted the percentage increase , so my answer is correct 3.5/.432 = 8.102 so the new price is 810% of the old one, but the increase is 710% e.g. suppose the cost of a coat went from $100 to $120 so it increased by 120%, but the percentage ...

number of dozen in the bucket = 450/12 = 37.5 so cost price per dozen = 16.20/37.5 = .432 So they bought them at $ 0.432 per dozen and sold them at $3.50 per dozen percentage increase = 3.5/.432 - 1 = 7.102 or 710%

Thanks Steve Had an inkling thats what he was doing, but then it was contradicted in how he worked the last one. btw, was it overkill in my solution to http://www.jiskha.com/display.cgi?id=1461944692 Almost gave up on it, but found some clues on a webpage.
