You can solve this problem two ways.
1. Find 12% of $53.74, then add that dollar amount to $53.74
2. Realize that if the price goes up by 12%, the new price will be 112% of $53.74, so just find 112% of $53.74
Solutions:
Method 1.
12% of $53.74 = 12% * $53.74 = 0.12 * $53.74 = $6.45
$53.74 + $6.45 = $60.19
Answer: $60.19
Method 2.
112% of $53.74 = 112% * $53.74 = 1.12 * $53.74 = $60.19
Answer: $60.19
