Math Word Problem

posted by .

Sales of frozen pizza for a club fund-raiser increased from 500 one year to 575 the next year. What was the percent of increase?

Would I divide 500 by 75?

    No, since you want the "percent of increase", you have to find the increase
    which is 75
    Now take 75/500 = .15 or 15% increase

    Oh I had it backwards, thank you Reiny for your help with all my questions.
