Using percentage Increase formula
% Increase = \(\frac{(Final Value - Original Value) }{Original Value} * 100 %\)
Final Value = 14 + 56 = 70
Initial Value = 56
% Increase = \(\frac{(70 - 56) }{56} * 100 %\)
= \(\frac{14 }{56} * 100 %\) = 25%
So, Answer is D.

Hope it helps!

(14/56)*100 = 25%

So when 14 is added to 56, it leads to % increase of 25%

Option D!

Percentage Increase = [ (Final Value - Starting Value) / Starting Value ] × 100

Example Problem: Percentage Increase
Percentage Increase = [ (Final Value - Starting Value) / Starting Value ] × 100

Final Value = 14 + 56 = 70
% Increase = (70−56)56∗100

14 / 56 = 0.25
0.25 × 100 = 25%

Answer is - D
