When Jim was exercising, his heart rate went from 72 beats per minute to 98 beats per minute. What was the percent increase to the nearest tenth of a percent? Additional Example 2: Health Application 26 72 Set up the ratio. 98 – 72 = 26 First find the amount of change. amount of increase original amount Find the decimal form. Write as a percent.  0.361  36.1% 26 72 From 72 to 98 increases by about 36.1%.

In 2005, a certain stock was worth \$1.25 a share. In 2006, the same stock was worth \$0.85 a share. What was the percent decrease? Check It Out! Example 2 1.25 – 0.85 = 0.40 First find the amount of change. amount of decrease original amount 1.25 0.40 Set up the ratio. Find the decimal form.

The discounted price was \$360.

Additional Example 3B: Finding Discount and Markup (85)(0.40) = 34Find 40% of \$85. This is the amount of markup. 85 + 34 = 119 Add \$34 to \$85. Method 1: Multiply, then add. Mr. Olsen has a computer business in which he sells everything 40% above the wholesale price. If he purchased a printer for \$85 wholesale, what will be the retail price? The retail price is \$119.
