If consumption does increase at this rate, find the amount by which the utility company will have to increase its generating capacity in order to meet the needs of the area at the end of the decade.

if the consumption increases 11% ------> every 1 year then how much will it increase (x)-------> in 9 years? are you aware of this way? we have the following now: 11%---------> 1 year x (%) --------> 9 years cross multiply and you'll get : x(%) = (11)% (9) x = 99% I guess, I'm not sure though :) correct me please if I'm wrong ^_^
