1.11^9 if you consider 9 years left until the end of this decade.
how would you put the answer into percent
to convert a number into a percent, all you have to do is multiply it by 100 ^_^

i did what the other person did and still got the wrong answer
hmm, I'll try
hmm, let's count, when will this decade end?
in 9 years?
oh I think I got it now :)
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 ^_^
still not right. dont worry about it.
does a decade end in 9 years?
well a decade is 10 years
then it must me 110% instead of multiplying by 9 that is :)
