The formula for percentage increase is given as:-

Percentage Increase = ( New Price - Old Price ) /old price * 100

Now

old price = $525

New Price = $650

lets plug the values in the formula

Percentage Increase =

=**24%**

Hence the price increases by 24%

**Answer: x = 7 and y = 2**

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Since x is already defined for us, we can substitute for it in the second equation which gives us:

(5y - 3) + y = 9

6y - 3 = 9

6y = 12

y = 2

Then find x using y

x = 5(2) - 3

x = 10 - 3

x = 7

You can buy 14 cans max. It totals out at $9.66, with 15 bringing it 35 cents over the limit. Using trial and error with multiplication is one way to solve it.

The answer is **A) 5b**

Lets try an example:

Lets say we have 3 boxes in total of both board games. We can solve for b since b = 3 in the example.

= 5b

= 5(3)

= 15 dice in total

We can check our answer by adding the amount of dice per box.

2 + 3 = 5

Then multiplying by the number of boxes.

5 * 3 = 15 dice total
