**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 .
