Answer:

An increase of 325% means 425% total ($12750)

Explanation:

As it's stated an increase is the plus to the original condition. Therefore in this case is 100% (original price) + 325% (the increase).

You can see it form the following formula

#% = ((X_1 - X_0) / X_0)100 #

Where #X_1# is the actual value and #X_0# is the original value

Then if we solve for #X_1# we could have

#X_1 = (X_0 xx %)/100 + X_0#

Replacing values:

#X_1 = (3000 xx 325)/100 + 3000#

#X_1 = 12750#

Or as I say in the answer

#X_1 = 3000xx425/100 = 12750#

Now you just need to add the tax, just joking...

Hope this helps
