Sally grew 200% more than Jon.

Interpretation: Sall grew 1 inch same as Jon and also grew 200% more.

So, Sally grew total of 300%. I.e. 3 inch.

A) 0
B) 1
C) 2
D) 3
E) 4


We are given that last year Joe grew 1 inch and that Sally grew 200 percent more than Joe grew. This means Sally grew 300 percent as much as Joe grew. That is, Sally grew 3 times as much as Joe.

Thus, Sally grew 3 x 1 = 3 inches.

Answer: D

If nothing else the question states that Sally grew 200% more than Joe did, and that Joe grew an inch. Right off the bat that eliminates A and B.

B) 1

D) 3
E) 4


Easy question, but the wording is tricky

\(\frac{Change in growth}{Joe's Growth}\) = Percent

\(\frac{Sally's Growth - Joe's Growth}{Joe's Growth}\) = 200% (which is 2)

\(\frac{X - 1}{1}\) = 2

\(x-1 = 2\)

\(X = 3\)

Sally grew 3 inches, so Answer is D
