Basic Math/Percentage word problem
If I know that Roseville is 116% more expensive than Sacramento, and I know that Sacramento is 29% more expensive than Mexico City , how do I figure how much more expensive Roseville is than Mexico City? Thanks
Let's say Mexico City costs x, so Sacramento costs (.29x+x) and
Roseville costs 1.16(.29x+x)+(.29x+x).
Simplifying, Mexico City = x, Sacramento = 1.29x and Roseville = 2.79x, therefore, Roseville is 279% more expensive than Mexico City.
Here is the math for Roseville
1.49x + 1.29x = 2.79x (rounded from 2.786)
