QUESTION:-

What amount increased by 161% will equal $325?

Round your final answer properly to two decimal places.

$ ____________

SOLUTION:-

In the question we know:-

Amount increased by 161% = $325

Percentage increased = 161%

Amount increased = x = ?

Let the unknown value be x;

Therefore, 

Amount increased by 161% = Amount increased * Percent increase

                                        = x * 161%

                                        = x * 161/100

Amount increased by 161% = 1.61x 

Now according to the question;

Amount increased by 161% is $325

Amount increased + Amount increased by 161% = $325

             x               +              1.61x                        = $325

Hence;

x + 1.61x = 325

2.61x = 325

x = 325/2.61

x = 124.5210

x = 124.52

Thus;

$124.52 increased by 161% is $325

Let amount be $ x .

Increase= 161% of x =  `161/100 xx x=1.61x`

Thus by given condition

`x+1.61x=325`

`2.61x=325`

`x=325/2.61=124.5210`

`x approx 124.52`

Thus amount is $124.42 .
