In 1970 there were 8,902 women stockbrokers in the United States. By 1978 the number had increased to 19,947. Approximately what was the percent increase?

(A) 45%
(B) 125%
(C) 145%
(D) 150%
(E) 225%


% increase =\(\frac{(19947-8902) * 100}{8902}\)
= \(\frac{11905}{8902 * 100}\)
~\(\frac{12000 *100}{9000}\)
< 130%
~ 125 %
