let the the average txns (2006) be s and txns (2009) be n.
Translating the prompt to an equation -If the total value of all credit card transactions in 2009 was 10% more than the total value of all credit card transactions in 2006, we get the below.
20n = 22s (110/100)
100n=121s
n/s = 121/100 =1.21

Calculating the increase in percentage;
(n/s - 1)100% = (1.21-1.00)100% = 21%

Hope this helps!!

(if it does, please hit kudos)
