if you multiply 308 time (1/15) you get how many a (1/15) increase would be
if you multiply 308 times (16/15) you get how many a (1/15) increase would be plus the original 308
the opposite happens when you divide (a decrease, like in this problem)
308/(16/15) = 328.5333436
So there were 328?
well, rounding i guess it would be 329... but i dont know how you would have half a person so... either
