Nov 29, 2016

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

#### Explanation:

To calculate the percentage change you use the formula:

$p = \frac{N - O}{O} \cdot 100$ 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:

$p = \frac{60 - 26}{26} \cdot 100$

$p = \frac{34}{26} \cdot 100$

$p = \frac{3400}{26}$

p = 130.8% rounded to the nearest 10th
