Hi,
Consider an example. \(x\) is 50% greater than 2. Find \(x\). Now, in order to find \(x\) we'll have multiply 2 by 50% and add 2:
\(x = 2*50% + 2 = 1 + 2 = 3\)
Now let's check if we did it right:
\(\frac{3-2}{2}*100% = 50%\)
If \(x\) is 200% greater than 2, the process of finding \(x\) remains the same:
\(x = 2*200% + 2 = 4 + 2 = 6\)
Check:
\(\frac{6-2}{2}*100% = 200%\)
I hope it helps

Hi,
Why do we consider 3.24 and not 2.24?
Is it because
x= 1/x(1+2.24)?
Please let me know.
Thanks!
