    5 divided by 8 = 0.625 which calculates to 62.5% It could also be calculated to 0.4%.

    you guys should let her do at least a little of the work.... at least until she knows how to do it completely by herself so she can be confident with another question like this and doesnt need help on it

    It would be 3/5 because 5 would be 100% increase and 3 is how much it increased.

    I thought I had to do 5 divided by 8 ?

    Then multiply the answer to 3/5 by 100 then add the percent sign.

    Either works, but the way I do it is just a short cut to get the rounded answer.
