3200

#### Explanation:

100% of $2000$ would be $2000$. That's the same as saying

$1 \times 2000 = 2000$

So 160% of $2000$ is like saying

$1.6 \times 2000 = 3200$

#### Explanation:

since 160% is more than 100% the answer will be greater that what you are starting with. essentially, you're taking the initial 2000, keeping it and adding another 60%.

in decimals, 100% = 1 and 60% = .6.

2000 x 1.6 = 3200

or

2000 x 1 = 2000
2000 x .6 = 1200

2000 + 1200 = 3200
