You named the topic: "PS-At the beginning of 2011, Company X created" whereas it should have been "At the beginning of 2011, Company X created a list of n charities, and", without PS (first sentences of the question). This way our search & similar topics feature will identify similar question properly.

Sol:

Let profit be "P"

for n charities - each get p/n
when a charities are removed - each get p/(n-a)

increase will be (p/(n-a)) - (p/n) = pa/(n-a)*n

Increase % will be (pa/(n-a)*n) / (p/n) multiplied by 100.

result will be 100a/(n-a)
