If the investment rises from \$1000 to \$5000, the percent is what from the original?

5000/1000 = 5 = 500%

Thank you

No.

The investment has only increased by 4,000.

4,000/1,000 = 4 = 400%

Umm, isn't it 5000? :)

• Math -

Wait... isn't it what percent of the original, not how much it increased?

• Math -

No. 500% is right. I tried it on my online homework. Thanks :)
