Increase by 28% means original+28% of original
28% of original is 0.28 times original

so
original+0.28 times original=1 times original+0.28 times original
undistribute original
original(1+0.28)
original(1.28)

so multiply it by 1.28 to incrase by 28%

### Calculate the percentage change (increase or decease) that occurs when: a) 25 becomes 60 b) 66 becomes 30 Please show workings out and/or explain.

The first step is to find the CHANGE. This is done by subtracting the two values and taking the absolute value. Next step is to find the ratio of the change to the original and multiplying by 100% to make it a percentage.

So;

a)  change = Ι60 - 25Ι = 35.

ratio of change to original = 35:25,

multiplying by 100% will give 35/25 × 100% = 140%.

Hence it is a 140% INCREASE.

b) change = | 30 - 66 | = 36

the ratio is 36:66

multiplying by 100% = 36/66 × 100% = 0.545454... ×100% ≈ 54.5%

Hence it is a 54.5% DECREASE.

### Diana can use the equation y = 7x to calculate her pay, where y represents the amount of pay, and x represents the number of hours worked. How many hours did Diana work if she was paid $45.50? Well from the equation$45.50 represents y (in this case) and now you're finding x.

y = 7x

45.50 = 7x    Divide both sides of the equation by 7 to find x.

45.50/7 = 7x/7

6.50 = x

Hence she worked 6.5 hours (or 6 hours 30 minutes.)
