1020/102=10 so I think the answer is 1000%

Help me with: On American ignorance…

1000 %

1020/102=10 so I think the answer is 1000%

for sure!?!? your positive?

Jeesus taxes are ridiculous

900%

\$102 is 10% of \$1020

sooo

umm

100%?

lol my brain ain’t good late at night…

Help me with: R U OK?

102 = 100%
1.02 = 1 %

\$102 is 10% of \$1020

That’s the wrong way.
102 is the initial value, therefore 100%

Its not 1000%… The change is FROM 102 to 1020… So you need to calculate the %ge of 918 over 102… 918 being the difference between 102 and 1020…

I fear for you kids…

No, you may also check it: http://math.about.com/library/weekly/…

It can’t be 1000%. We calculate the percent of change after we calculate the change its self.

Thats right..
Isnt it: 1020 - 102= 918
and if 102 > 100%
918 > ??
cross multiply: 918 x 100= 91 800
then you divide it= 91 800/ 102= 900%

Help me with: What is ‘luck’?

%ge Change = {(End Position less Initial Position)/Initial position} X 100

So, 1020 less 102 = 918

918 divided by 102 = 9

9 * 100 = 900

Therefore, 900%

that cant be right, apply it to 100 and 10, check it?

You can have it easier:
102 = 100%
1020 = 1000%
1000& - 100% is the real increase.

if i was any good at math do you think i’d ask this question? theres no need to be rude, it only makes yourself look bad.

But you need to find the INCREASE.. not how much percent 1020 is

zirbel, you dont even understand it. you arent contributing in any way.

so, you need to minus it in the beginning

In order to find the INCREASE, you need to find the difference

Haha, same result, but a more complicate way.

you do it then.

z€bπå §pØ†s, you still don’t get it?
The INCREASE is still 900% — for ever.

you dont even know how it happened. you dont understand, you arent fooling anyone. go away or be of some use.

How?

By subtracting (minussing) 102 from 1020…

Your question basically says, how much MORE do you need to make 102 into 1020…

The answer is you need 918 MORE… Now, How do you represent something as a percentage?

By making it a fraction of the FIRST number (102) and multiplying it by 100…

Viola, 900%

The question basically was: “it increased by how much %”
The answer is 1000%

But you have to PAY only 900% more.

that doesnt make sense, you just said the asnwer to how much more is 1000 then you have to pay 900 more, make up your mind.

No, 1000% is how much 1020 is comparing to 102

Once again, we are trying to find the INCREASE!
The question has been solved..
Stop it there!

the real question is why are being ripped off from such a big bill increse

lol because in victoria, bc, the CRD is planning on making a secondary wastewater treatment plant.

however, it will cost over 1billion to build and sustain, and that it will give a carbon footprint equal to that of 8000 cars annually (nearly double during construction) and they insist on building it, even tho the current water treatment is eco friendly cost effective and harmless to marine and human life

in other words, there is not benefit to building it. and they want to tax Victoria to do it.

original bill X percentage change = new bill
\$102 X % = \$1,020
\$1,020/\$102=10

as percentages are normally worked out in decimals, I think that means 900%?
102 = 100%
102*9 = 900%
102 + 900% = 1,020

It must be a billing error. There was a recent article about how someone got billed millions of dollars by their cable company

I guess it would be better to say in your essay “this new xxxxxx would cost 1000% of what the original cost,” since you get to say 1000 instead of 900 and people will be like “omg! Three zeros! Thats a big frigging number!”

Are you serious? they can’t do that. i’m sorry zebra spots… can they really do that?

Calculators are amazing.

102 x 10 = 1020
102 + 0% = 102
102 + 100% = 306
102 + 200% = 306
102 + 300% = 408
102 + 400% = 510
102 + 500% = 612
102 + 600% = 714
102 + 700% = 816
102 + 800% = 918
102 + 900% = 1020

no, its an increase. tax increase. crazy, right?

900 sounds great

Help me with: Feelings

Sorry for my typo earlier!

102 + 0% = 102
102 + 100% = 204
102 + 200% = 306
102 + 300% = 408
102 + 400% = 510
102 + 500% = 612
102 + 600% = 714
102 + 700% = 816
102 + 800% = 918
102 + 900% = 1020

So, it’s a 900% increase.

I am amazed at how hostile this all got- it’s a simple maths problem, even if I made a typo!
