  • Lesson - Percent of  an Increase with Rounding Lesson (see below for printable lesson).


Lesson Excerpt:

When there is a difference in a price over time, we call this a percent of increase or a percent of decrease.

This lesson focuses on finding the percent of increase when rounding is necessary.

Let’s begin by reviewing how we can find the percent of an increase.
We find the percent of an increase by comparing the original price with a new price.  There are a few steps to remember when doing this.  Let’s start by going over the steps as we look at the following example.

Example:
            Original price = $28.00
            New price = $49.00
            What is the percent of increase?
