Answer:

95%

Explanation:

Say, In 1975 cost of antique car was $100.

Then In 1980 cost has increased by 30%. so the cost of the same car will be = $100 + 30% of $100 = $130.

Further In 1985 cost has increased by 50%. So the cost of the same
car will be = $130 + 50% of $130 = $130 + $65 = $195

The price of the car has increased from 1975 to 1985 = $195 -$100 = $95 .
Hence %age of increasing = 95%
