A number is increased by 400% , or 360 . What is the original number?
Try rephrasing it: to get you started... a 400% increase is 4x...
wait what? Is the final number 36)?
thats exactly how it says it on the work sheet.
Sorry the questions is confusing... I really hate making assumptions because I can be wrong. Go ask again.
okay thank you though.
I think the question is phrased simply enough... it's basically saying "400% of a number is 360...what's the number?" so you get 4x = 360 .. solve for x
No it can also mean that it was raised by 400 or maybe 360 we don't know. Seeing as the value of 400% percent is close to the number 360% making the assumption that 360 is the final number can be a mistake.
