Answer:

The percent change is 130.8% rounded to the nearest 10th.

Explanation:

To calculate the percentage change you use the formula:

#p = (N - O)/O*100# where #p# is the percentage change, #N# is the new value and #O# is the old value. In this problem we are given the Old value of 26 and New value of 60. Substituting and solving gives:

#p = (60 - 26)/26*100#

#p = 34/26*100#

#p = 3400/26#

#p = 130.8%# rounded to the nearest 10th
