Question should read:

When the stock market opened yesterday, the price of a share of stock X was 10 1/2. When the market closed, the price was 11 1/4. Of the following, which is closest to the percent increase in the price of stock X?

A. 0.5%
B. 1.0%
C. 6.7%
D. 7.1%
E. 7.5%

General formula for percent increase or decrease, (percent change): \(Percent=\frac{Change}{Original}*100\).

So, the percent increase in the price of stock X is \(\frac{\frac{45}{4}-\frac{21}{2}}{\frac{21}{2}}*100=\frac{50}{7}%\approx{7.1%}\).

Answer: D.
