My question is:
The price of gasoline increased from 93.9 to 99.9. Write the increse as a percent.
My answer is: 6%
Am i correct?

yes its not that hard
99.993.9=6
get a calculator 
It's almost correct.
Percentage Increases are measured in actual increse divided by the original value.
In the given case, actual increase is 6 cents, and the original value (price) is 93.9 cents. The percentage increase is therefore
6/93.9*100%, a little more than 6%. 
2+2

Am I real
