Finding New Amount Given Percent and Original
This video shows how to find a new amount after being given the original amount and percent. If John earned $800 on Tuesday and his earnings increased by 65% on Wednesday, what were Wednesday’s total earnings? First, turn the percent into a decimal and multiply it by the original amount: 0.65 x 800 = 520. John earned $520 on Wednesday.
