    First you would multiply $53.74 by 12% or .12

    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
