    Ok so same thing... First you have to find what 30.5% is of 2,206,000 this will be represented as x/2,206,000. 30.5%=30.5/100 cross multiply 100(x)=100x 30.5(2,206,000)=67,283,000 now: 67,283,000/100= 672,830 x=672,830

    Now the problem says that jobs are expected to increase so you will add x to 2,206,000: 2,206,000+672,830=2,878,830 Your final answer is: the total number of jobs expected in this occupation in 2010 are 2,878,830 jobs.
