What was the percentagw increase in motor vehicle production in countries out side the united states from 1950 to 1997?

1997 world total 53,463
the united states 12,119

1950 the world total 10577
the united states 8,006

these number are in thousands

i thought i would have subtract the united states from the world total and then divide the world total of 1997 by the world total 1950

am i correct

53,463 - 12,119=41344
10577-8006=2571

then divid 41344/2571
16.08 would that be the percentage

You forgot to multiply by 100.

1608 percent.
