Answer:

The percent of change is approximately #96.3#.

Explanation:

The amount of change is #53-27=26#

Therefore the percent of change from #27# can be expressed as:

#27xxx/100=26#

Multiply both sides by #100/27#.

#x=26xx100/27#

#x=2600/27#

#x=96.296#

Answer:

#96.3%# increase

Explanation:

Any change can be given as a percent change from the starting value. The change is sometimes an increase and sometimes a decrease... the method remains the same.

Use the method: #"percent change" = ("change")/("original value") xx 100%#

In this case the change is an increase. #27 to 53#

The amount of change = #53-27 = 26#

Percent change = #26/27 xx100%" "# multiply by 100. % for answer

#= 96.296%#
