What was the percentage increase in motor vehicle production in countries outside the United States from 1950 – 1997?

1950- 10,577
1997- 53,463

I'm trying to figure out the percentages of population increases between different countries at different years. Having problems. I have added then divided by number of countries etc. Please help

please give us one set of numbers so we can work an example for you.

Ok
53,463 divided by 10,577= 5.055

Move decimal 3 places to right to get 505.5% increase

I don't think this is correct. One would have to take the world total minus the US output to get the starting numbers.
