15lbs to 18lbs

$38 to $65

125lbs to 143lbs

    These are all increases.

    18 - 15 = 3

    3/15 = 0.2 = 20%

    Try the others, and I'll check your answers.

    Thank you! Are these right?

    $38 to $65
    65-38=27
    27/38=0.710 = 70%

    125lb to 143lb
    143-125=18
    18/125=0.144= 14%

    You're close.

    27/38 = 0.7105 = 71.1% rounded to the nearest tenth

    18/125 = 0.144 = 14.4%
