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? :)

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

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

BBBBBBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMM!!
