Answer:

There is a 44.4% increase from 9 trillion to 13 trillion.

Explanation:

Because both terms are in trillions we can drop the trillion and solve the problem as what is the percentage increase from 9 to 13.

The formula for determining the percentage change between two values is:

#p = (N - O)/O*100#

Where:

#p# is the percentage change - what we need to determine in for this problem.

#N# is the New Value - #13# for this problem

#O# is the Old Value - #9# for this problem

Substituting and calculating #p# gives:

#p = (13 - 9)/9*100#

#p = 4/9*100#

#p = 400/9#

#p = 44.4# rounded to the nearest tenth.
