%age growth of = 88000-80000/80000 = 10 %
so 1.1 * 88,000 = 96800

(C) 96,000
(D) 96,800
(E) 100,000

% change = (88000 - 80000 / 80000)*100

=10%

This years's production = 88000

Next year's production = 88000 * 110% = 96800.

(B) 88,800
(C) 96,000
(D) 96,800
(E) 100,000

The percent growth from last year to this year is:

(88,000 - 80,000)/80,000 x 100

8,000/80,000 x 100

1/10 x 100 = 10 percent

Therefore, to keep the same percent growth from year to year, his business must produce 88,000 x 1.1 = 96,800 machine parts next year.
