The price of a TV rose from $350 to $371 in one
month. By what percent did the TV price rise?

1 Answer

6% increase

To calculate the percentage increase:
First: work out the difference (increase) between the two numbers you are comparing.

Increase = New Number - Original Number

Then: divide the increase by the original number and multiply the answer by 100.

% increase = Increase ÷ Original Number × 100.

If your answer is a negative number, then this is a percentage decrease.
