The price of a new car increased from $14,500 to $16,200.
What was the percent of increase?

Percent increase can be tricky.
find 16,200  14,500 that gives you the increase.
to find % increase.
divide that answer by the original amount which is $14,500.
you will get at decimal. Move the decimal to the right 2 places and add the % sign. 
16200 / 14500 = ?
we simplify by crossing out 0s
162 / 145
so nearly 12 % or...11.724137931% to be exact 
sorry forgot to add, minus minus one from 162/145
