Solve the following: 315 is 126% of

If a number increases from 47 to 70.5, what is the rate of increase?

• Math -

56 = x*125
x = 56/125 = 0.448 or 44.8%

45% = .45, so
.45*680 = 306

125% = 1.25, so
315 = 1.25x
x = 315/1.25 = 252

% increase is the change divided by the initial value, so we have

(70.5-47)/47 = .5 or a 50% increase
