# Last year40 people adopted a manatee through fias foundation. this year 30% more people adopted a manatee. how many more people adopted a manetee this year?

$12$ more people

#### Explanation:

Find 30% of $40$. That will automatically give you the answer.

$0.3 \cdot 40 = 12$

Why it works:
Find 130% of $40$.
$1.3 \cdot 40 = 52$
Subtract $52$ (which is 130%) from $40$ (which is 100%).
$52 - 40 = 12$
130%-100%=30%
