But then how do you find the growth factor? That's the part I'm not too sure about.

growth factor is the factor by which the number of students grew in one year. there were 11778 students one year, and there were 12196 students the next year. By what factor did they increase? It is the same as the ratio. the students increased by a factor of 1.035

ratios are expressed as 3:2. so you should express your ration for the previous problem part a) to 12196:11778

a:b is a ratio.

Right. They said to type it as a decimal or a number though. (:

however, you can represent 10:2 as 5:1 too. so you should factor out the common terms is 12196:11778 and post it as a simpler ratio.

a) 12,196/11,778 This is the ratio b) From (a) above, you get 1.035 This is the growth factor c) 12,196 - 11,778 = 418 This is the increase 418/11,778 = 0.035 = 3.5% This is the percent increase
