Nov 30, 2016

=30% increase

#### Explanation:

Any change can be given as a percent, no matter whether it is a profit, loss, increase, decrease, discount, markup etc.

% "change " = "amount of change"/"original amount" xx 100%

In this case, the change is from $110 \to 143$

The difference is: $143 - 110 = 33$

33/110 xx 100%

=30% increase
